Beginning July 29 through Aug. 4, 2012 the American Tennis Association (ATA) will host its 95th Annual Championships and Conference in Fort Lauderdale. The ATA is the oldest and largest African American Tennis Association in the United States and brings over 3000 visitors to Broward County, Fort Lauderdale along with a rich tennis history. Tennis greats such as Arthur Ashe and Althea Gibson came up through the ranks of the ATA and burst on the national stage mystifying their competition and the world with their talent.
On Wednesday, Aug. 1, as a mid-week slow down for the ATA, Midtown gears up for a hot night in the city chock full of art, culture and entertainment as a part of the ATA Conference.
