The Fairbanks Tennis Association kicked off the summer season with the Annual Community Block Party and Kids Free Tennis Event on May 20th. Tennis instruction was provided to Pre-K to adults with a total of fifty participants on the courts, with family and friends cheering from the sidelines.

FTA would like to acknowledge Design Alaska for sponsoring Kids’ Free Tennis again this year, Odom Corporation for in-kind contributions to the Block Party, and FNSB Parks&Recreation’s ongoing collaboration.
FTA would like to thank our volunteers who helped host the event for their generous time and effort. FTA greatly values our volunteers’ help and our community’s interest that made this event a success!
