A pair of tennis courts in a Hialeah park got a colorful new look thanks to an art initiative by the U.S. Tennis Association.

The USTA on Saturday will unveil its first Art Courts project at Norman and Jean Reach Park. Two courts at that park have been painted in a colorful, bold design by Kiik Create, a Miami artists collaborative. The idea is to promote local community tennis and public facilities. Local artists have been commissioned to turn tennis courts across the country into giant canvases of art.

The Hialeah project will benefit benefit Miami’s youth tennis and education program, First Serve Miami, which serves underprivileged youth. More than 50 First Serve kids will be on hand for the 11 a.m. ceremony on Saturday. The park is at 7895 NW 176 St, Hialeah.

Tennis star Roger Federer sent tennis fans into a tailspin on Monday, March 19, when he said tennis balls are yellow, not green.
