Kids around the world have been successfully playing tennis using the 10 & under format for years. The Village of Garden City Recreation Department is proud to announce that it will be adopting this USTA (United States Tennis Association) approved methodology for teaching children age 10 and under the game of tennis. By using slower-moving and lower-bouncing balls, shorter and lighter racquets on smaller courts kids can get into the game easier by making tennis more fun from the start by boosting their confidence and building skill development. Each practice will be designed appropriately for the physical, mental and social skills of that age group. Emphasis will be placed on rallying and playing so that children want to learn the skills necessary to play with their friends on a team. The rules for youth tennis have changed and the USTA requires all sanctioned 10 and under tournaments to be played using slower-moving and lower-bouncing balls on smaller courts. (Ages 4-8 will be taught on 36’ by 18’ court. Children 9 and 10 will be taught on 60’ by 21’ courts.) Therefore, the recreation department will be modifying the program to adapt to these new rules for its 10 and under tennis program.

It’s a cute little ‘bug.’ What it represents, however, is anything but cute.
An unusual-looking Volkswagen is toodling around Long Island this month. Painted to resemble the Asian longhorned beetle (ALB), the VW Beetle is part of efforts by the US Department of Agriculture to eliminate the pest, which can destroy 70 percent of an area’s tree canopy, according to the agency. Initially, officials held hope for complete eradication from about 23 square miles of the Island designated as infested or at risk by 2016. Instead, this “landcape-altering pest” is spreading.
