THE World Tennis Day will be celebrated around the major centres in the country tomorrow.

At the Regional Tennis Centre in Lautoka the fun activities will begin from 10.30am.

International Tennis Federation Pacific Oceania development officer Gene Ridgeway said everyone was eligible to participate in the activities.

He said the playing equipments would be provided at the various venues.

"At the RTC in Lautoka we will have cardio tennis which is the tennis aerobics session," Ridgeway said.

"The new Tennis Express which is a beginner program for adults designed by the ITF will be held. The Tennis 10s which is played on smaller courts with a softer ball will be staged. The players with the ITF scholarships together with the RTC coaches will be present to give short lessons."

Fiji's top junior players including Annie Shannon and Tarani Kamoe will participate in the program in Lautoka.

The Tennis 10s program will be held at the International School in Nadi for the juniors.
