Children from all over the tri-state area have a chance to play alongside some of the world's top tennis players at the EmblemHealth Bronx Open.
The annual week-long event at Crotona Park features 32 of the top 100 women's tennis players, before they head on to the U.S. Open.
It also showcases the fourth-annual tennis match between the New York Police Department and the Fire Department City of New York.
Organizers say they are most excited about providing activities for the kids, including free tennis lessons.
"We will supply the balls, the tennis racquets, the instructors, everything but the sneakers," said Chairman Carlos Cuevas of the EmblemHealth Bronx Open. "And also there will be the ball boys here, and some of our people that have served as ball boys here have gone on to be ball persons at the U.S. Open."
The event is free except for the finals on Saturday, which costs $10 admission.
