I just added a fabulous, fun site to my “I Heart Tennis Websites!” list in the sidebar: www.Tennis-Bargains.com (You didn't know there was an “I Heart Tennis Websites!” list in the sidebar? Well, you need to check it out! Go to the far right of this page and scroll down about halfway to find the list.). Tennis-Bargains is a great place for deals and discounts on tennis gear, apparel, tickets, memberships, and on and on.
The reason I'm highlighting Tennis-Bargains right now is because those guys discovered an incredible deal being offered by the USTA. Between now and Dec. 31, 2011, kids 10 and under can get a totally FREE Junior membership to the USTA! All of the details are given in this Tennis-Bargains post: USTA Membership FREE code – Ages 10 and under. If you click on that title, you'll be taken to the Tennis-Bargains post that will walk you through the steps on how to sign your child up for this free membership. I personally went through the process but didn't complete it since my kid is 11 and I didn't want to one day get in trouble with the USTA when he's trying to get on the United States Davis Cup team and they point out that he lied about his age back in 2011.
The free Junior membership includes a subscription to “Bounce” magazine (a tennis publication aimed at kids), access to USTA Junior tournaments, and a chance to play USTA Junior team tennis. As you probably guessed, this is all part of the USTA's big push to get kids involved in the new 10 and under tennis format they've adopted and to hopefully attract children to tennis at a younger age.
So, if your child is young enough, check out this great deal on Tennis-Bargains and get your free USTA Junior membership!
