Play like Blake

If you know someone between the ages of 6-18 who's looking for something to do now that school's out, the New York Junior Tennis League wants to give them free tennis lessons starting today.

You don't even need a racket--just show up at any of nearly 50 locations in all five boroughs, pretty much anytime during the day this week (or next week, or the next....)

And yup, current world #8 James Blake got his start in one of these programs....
