The U.S. Open was serving up fun in Flushing with kids from around Queens.

On Wednesday, Aug. 24, kids from around the borough gathered at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center for the U.S. Open’s fourth annual “Queens Day.”

The day featured a number of activities for kids to take part in, including a tennis clinic hosted by 2016 Rio Olympic Gold Medalist Monica Puig.

Children who participated in the clinic came from The Child Center of NY and Elmcor Youth & Adult Activities Community Center. The clinic was a part of the U.S. Open’s “Returning the Love” initiative, which reaches out to and welcomes the community from these organizations, both on and off the court.

The day also featured exhibits for kids and adults from The Queens Zoo, Queens Botanical Gardens, Queens Museum, Queens Theater, Queens Library, Louis Armstrong House Museum and New York Hall of Science. Kids were also able to make crafts and have their faces painted.
