An Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day 2015 Gallery

Although it steamed up as late August afternoons do in NYC, today was a  blue skied beauty for the U.S. Open’s Arthur Ashe Kids Day (#AAKD), a day for celebrating and growing our sport. Below,  a photo gallery from the grounds, from the action packed courts, to sponsor tents to the main acts. Great to see so many kids just getting started – and man, some kids were already damn good.
