USTA Junior Tennis Classic
The Independence Bowl Junior Tennis Classic USTA Southern Level 2 was back for the third straight year at Pierremont Oaks Tennis Club in 2019, but was not held in 2020 due to COVID-19. The tournament, which was back in Shreveport for the first time since the early 1980’s in 2018, brings hundreds of junior tennis players from Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina to the Shreveport-Bossier City area. The groups included are girls and boys 12’s through 18’s, and the tournament has featured 37 competitors from the Shreveport-Bossier City area the last two years of the tournament in 2018 and 2019.
Players and coaches from both teams get involved in the community during bowl week. An annual highlight for the players, they visit with the children of Providence House and residents of Holy Angels, tour Barksdale Air Force Base and visit with active members of the military, help bag food at the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana, and build beds with Sleep in Heavenly Peace for low income families.
