Arthur Ashe Birthday Blast

Come Join the Celebration

Arthur Ashe Birthday Blast

RTA was a proud sponsor of the Arthur Ashe Birthday Blast on Wednesday, July 12th at Battery Park. This birthday celebration provided free tennis lessons to children 8-16 years of age and information on where to get low cost tennis programs around town.

The amazing Arthur Ashe Memorial Mural was unveiled by Sir James Thornhill and artists from U.N.I.T.Y Street Project. The mural depicts the life and contributions of Richmond native, Arthur Ashe, Jr.

WRIC, channel 8, was out to cover the event and featured the following video:
