NYC Aces Hosts Another Young Professionals Social
NYC Aces, USTA Eastern Metro’s group of young professionals who love tennis, came out for a night of competition, networking, food, drinks and a raffle supporting youth tennis in New York City. Themed as an “End-of-Year Tennis Social,” more than 50 young professionals from the New York Metro Area spent the evening at Roosevelt Island Racquet Club, enjoying everything from a doubles tournament with winners receiving Starbucks gift cards, to wine, beer, pizza and chicken wings. To cap the night, three lucky young professionals were an24
nounced as winners of a raffle that featured PowerShares QQQ Cup tickets at Barclays Center and U.S. Open tickets as prizes. Certainly a memorable night for all in attendance, with many leaving the facility asking when the next social was taking place. Event organizers are expecting to have their first NYC Aces event of 2017 take place in January, with monthly events to follow.
