HARRISBURG -- Harrisburg tennis pro and coach Keith Dismuke of Zero Gravity Tennis will give away free tennis rackets to children age 12 and younger Saturday at the Paul Emery Park tennis courts.

Dismuke said the program is designed to encourage youngsters to take an interest in tennis and to promote a healthy lifestyle.

"Tennis is easy to learn and tailored for all ages and abilities, helping kids build friendships and learn skills they'll use for life," Dismuke said.

On Saturday, for each eligible child who registers with a parent or guardian accompanying them, Dismuke will give away the tennis rackets along with tennis balls. Participating youth must wear tennis shoes.

Dismuke is partnered the United States Tennis Association. Through USTA's Net Generation program, all youth tennis players are able to play regardless of skill level, Dismuke said.
