Summer’s coming to a close, and those long, hazy days will soon be behind us as school starts and seasonal activities like cookouts, pool parties, and 1 p.m. wake-up times will be put on hold until next summer. So take advantage of an upcoming block party, which will incorporate tennis, food, and music. And even better, it’s free. Family Circle Tennis Center will host its sixth annual Tennis Block Party. The day begins at 9 a.m. and will feature music, games, tennis drills, refreshments, and more. The event will feature tennis instruction provided by the Tennis Center’s Instinctive Tennis Academy (I.T.A.). There will also be complimentary raffles held throughout the morning with more than $2,500 in prizes, which include two 2012 Family Circle Cup Intro Ticket Packages, a Family Circle Tennis Center membership, Family Circle Cup autographed items, a Dunlop tennis racquet and bag, concert tickets for Hootie and the Blowfish, and Charleston RiverDogs tickets. The event ends with a cookout at noon.
