(AP) Michelle Obama urged her daughters to get active in tennis so they won't struggle at the game the way she does as an adult.


The first lady shared that story Saturday during Arthur Ashe Kids' Day at the U.S. Open, where she promoted her "Let's Move" campaign.


Obama applauded a USTA initiative to install 5,000 new kid-sized tennis courts across the country and train 15,000 new coaches, trainers and teachers over a three-year period beginning in 2014.


Obama is leading a national campaign to get kids more active and eating healthy meals. She told the fans at Arthur Ashe Stadium that tennis, which has created new kid-friendly courts, rackets and balls to make the game more accessible to young players, is a great way for children to say active.
