#GETONTHECOURT WITH OTA EVENTS THIS SUMMER! THE FOURTH ANNUAL TENNIS ROCKS! Festival was held on Sat, June 3 at the Aviva Centre. A record number of teams (52) and players (250+) participated in this fun-fi lled day of team tennis and other activities including skill games, the Pizzaville Smash Cage, a live DJ, contests and prizes on Centre court as well as pizza lunch and an ice cream truck!. There were 21 teams entered in the U10/U12 division – up from 16 last year – a sparkling testament to the popularity of tennis in the younger age groups. Thanks to Sonja Zibin and Todd Orrett from the Inter County Tennis Association for co- hosting the day and to all the volunteers, captains and parents. THE NATIONAL BANK ROADSHOW The National Bank Roadshow has already visited over 45 clubs and community festivals this season, with many more visits planned. Our ambassadors add tremendous value to a club's special event or tournament. There are Babolat racquet demos, prizes and the Pizzaville Smash Cage. National Bank will continue to promote their On the Ball programme, an initiative that has played an active role in improving the classroom environment for children. There are still a few openings in the late summer so get your club to contact the OTA offi ce. IT'S TOURNAMENT TIME AT THE OTA!
