Drawn to the high-pitched sound wavelengths of shoe squeaks, dogs enjoy watching tennis more than golf or whatever’s going on outside the kitchen window. See what all the fuss is about with today’s Groupon. For $40, you get an all-inclusive pass to the United States Tennis Association Northern Section’s Tennis Festival of the North (a $100 value), which runs from Friday, April 9, through Sunday, April 11, at Eden Prairie High School.
Melding a flurry of powerful forehand chops, pinpoint pivoting, and sneaky backhand lobs, tennis is second only to competitive chainsaw sculpting as America’s favorite sport at which to grunt. Sponsored by the United States Tennis Association Northern Section, the Tennis Festival of the North features three days of events that include demos, clinics, an exhibition match, and jet-engine–powered tennis-ball launchers. Tennis fans and fanatics alike will enjoy an all-inclusive pass that includes access to Friday-evening demos and drills, Saturday and Sunday clinics, and general-admission seating to Saturday's exhibition. Tennis pros and experienced instructors lead informative sessions on topics such as Boomers and Beyond, Playing Tennis After 50, and Nutrition Hints for Winning Tennis, while attendees can also browse a vendor fair and an interactive fan zone. Additionally, Olympic gold medalist Lindsay Davenport and 18-time Grand Slam singles champion Martina Navratilova will be present to talk tennis and cut up the court during an exhibition match.
Pick up insider tips to finally one-up a snobby, cardigan-wearing neighbor on the tennis court, or peruse a busy schedule of events while popping open funky-smelling tennis-ball canisters that don't contain snakes. The Tennis Festival of the North offers a fun-filled weekend of high-flying tennis action that’s more exhilarating than watching Andre Agassi’s feathery hair shimmy in the wind during a high-pressure foosball match.
