Arthur Ashe Kids Day


Families and budding tennis stars came out in droves this Saturday, August 23 for the annual Arthur Ashe Kids' Day at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. Kicking off the US Open 2014, the kid-friendly event in Flushing Meadows invited little ones to jump in on an obstacle course, face painting, storytelling and practice their serves and backhands in tennis workshops on the famed tennis courts.


Youngsters had the chance to watch top-notch pros like Novak Djokovic, Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka up close as they showed off their skills on the court and mingle with a celebrity-studded crowd including the likes of The Vamps, Shawn Mendes, and this year's stadium show headliner, Hunter Hayes. Some lucky kids even snagged autographs from this year's athletes and performers.


Click through the slideshow above to see what the kids got up to at this year's event, and make sure to check off the other nine items on our list of things to do in NYC with kids before summer 2014 ends.
