Grab your racket and volley up some borough pride.
The inaugural Battle of the Boroughs Tennis Challenge is coming to Flushing Meadows-Corona Park on May 11.
Hosted by USTA Eastern, the new tournament calls for tennis aces to represent their boroughs and be the last team standing in the citywide competition at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center on June 15.
Teams can register for a slot at eastern.usta.com/boroughs for $20 per player. There can be up to 10 members on a team. Each player must be at least 19 years old.
Proceeds will benefit City Parks Foundation, which gives free tennis lessons to children at 40 parks citywide.
The winning team will receive a trophy, but all participants will be given t-shirts, snacks and two free rounds of tennis.
