See every swing and serve at Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day 2013 (photos)

We were there as families took to the US Open grounds for tennis clinics, face painting, delicious summery treats and even a chance to watch the pros practice!

Arthur Ashe Kids Day 2013

The US Open’s family-friendly kickoff event, Arthur Ashe Kids' Day, brought hordes of tennis fans (as well as the athletics-averse) to the end of the 7 train for the 18th annual hurrah—and we were there for all the action. While First Lady Michelle Obama, pop sensations Ariana Grande and Austin Mahone and reigning champ Serena Williams wowed crowds from inside Arthur Ashe Stadium (as you can imagine, tickets to the show sold out super fast), families could still enter the US Open grounds free of charge for face painting, hair beading, tennis clinics and a chance to watch the competitors practice for the upcoming games. Even Novak Djokovic, one of the world’s top players, hung out with fans on the grounds before going head-to-head with a talented group of tweens in the “Beat the Pros” segment of the stadium show. Missed this year’s fest? Scroll through our photos, and be sure to keep an eye out for next year’s lineup!
