A number of USTA programs for children and adults of all ages and skill levels are available at the facility, including USTA Leagues and Junior Team Tennis.
Tamiami Tennis Center and Tamiami Park are public facilities under Miami-Dade County Parks and Recreation, the largest parks and recreation organization in Florida.
All the courts built or renovated were specially lined to enable participation in the USTA’s youth participation initiative, 10 and Under Tennis. Youth tennis is geared toward enticing more kids to participate in tennis using modified equipment and courts tailored to a child’s age and ability. By featuring shorter and lighter racquets, slower-bouncing balls, smaller courts and simplified scoring, children learn to play more quickly and easily while having fun in the process.
The Tamiami Tennis Center is at 11201 SW 24th St. Call 305-223-7076. For information and photos go to www.ustamiami.com.
