The Freedoms will be hosting ballkid tryouts on June 16, at 7:00pm, outside Macy’s at the King of Prussia Mall. Tryouts are for those between the ages of 10-18. Applicants should wear sneakers and comfortable clothing.
Applicants will be judged on the following criteria: speed, agility, reaction time, throwing, and basic tennis knowledge. Ballkids selected will be a part of a prestigious group that will have the opportunity to participate at all Freedoms home matches during upcoming World TeamTennis events.
“This is an amazing opportunity for young tennis fans,” said Freedoms General Manager Barbara Perry. “It’s a lot of hard work for the kids, but it’s a terrific experience for them to work with the best players in the world.”
