The Sloane Stephens Foundation continues its dedication to area school children by hosting a Net Generation Day at Centennial High School in Compton on April 12. The event welcomes kids from area schools for a play day festival for younger age levels, and a more competitive experience with doubles tennis provided for older schoolchildren.
The event is also an early showcase for the USTA’s Net Generation platform, aimed at cultivating long term interest in the game among children of all ages (netgeneration.com). Up to 400 boys and girls are expected to attend Net Generation Day in Compton.
Sloane Stephens, the 2017 U.S. Open champion, won the prestigious Miami Open on April 1. Her event schedule in coming months includes stops in Rome and Madrid, plus the French Open and Wimbledon grand slams. Stephens was born in Plantation, FL and continues to train on both coasts, from Florida to Los Angeles. She is the current World #9 on the WTA Tour, and will be appearing at the April 12 event.
