RRTEA Block Party

The River Rock Tennis and Education Association (RRTEA) celebrated May as National Tennis Month with their annual Block Party on Saturday, May 26 at Riverside Park in Buffalo.  The event was sponsored by USTA Eastern and Buffalo Niagara Community Tennis Association (BNCTA).

There was a 10 and Under Tennis rally for the young children utilizing the QuickStart Tennis (QST) play format and match play for neighborhood teenagers along with raffles and pizza throughout the afternoon.  Jennifer Russell of the Hair Oasis and dedicated RRTEA volunteer Gail Fox were raffle winners.

RRTEA is offering summer Tennis Camps at Riverside Park for youth of all ages, and they also offer an adult lesson program and other events throughout the year.  Wednesday June 6 at 6:00 PM is the start date/time for RRTEA’s 10 and Under Tennis Camp.  The Junior Team Tennis Camp for teenagers begins Monday July 2nd at 6:00 PM.  There is a registration fee for the youth camps of $25.00 with scholarships available.  Anyone interested in signing up for an RRTEA program or becoming an RRTEA volunteer should contact Marsha Huard at mhuard@buffaloschools.org.
