Providers created tennis events and matchplay opportunities all over the world in March. Universal Tennis is recognizing the club, event, and newcomer of the month.
Club of the Month: The Tennis Club at Newport Beach (Newport Beach, California)
The Tennis Club at Newport Beach has become a staple on the UTR Pro Tennis Tour. Hosting PTT $25K events regularly for both men and women, the club also hosts wild card events so players can compete to earn their place on the PTT. In March, the club held four $25K Wild Card Tournaments that also offered $2,000 in prize money.
The Tennis Club at Newport Beach attracted 450 players in March and has 2,297 members in its Digital Club.
Event of the Month: Values Through Sport Colombia - Tenis Y Valores (Bogota, Colombia)
Tennis y Valores is making a huge impact in Colombia by introducing colored progression balls for young juniors. Provider Claudia Patricia Zapata Florez organizes each event by a specific value (such as perseverance, discipline, and gratitude) that serves as the main lesson for the children. Her event for perseverance at the end of March saw 143 young players take part. Groups were organized by ball color (green, orange, red, and yellow).
