Andy Roddick and other American tennis players joined the Obama family at the White House on Monday for the 134th annual Easter Egg Roll, celebrating the theme “Let’s Go, “Let’s Play, Let’s Move”.

Roddick, Michael Chang, Taylor Dent, Jack Sock, along with Chris Evert, Chanda Rubin, Vania King and Bethanie Mattek-Sands, assisted with the USTA’s 10 and Under Tennis on-court activities, supporting First Lady Michelle Obama’s initiative to get kids active.

President Barack Obama also tried his hand at tennis, stopping by the courts to partner nine-year-old Isabella Irlando in a game of mixed doubles against Evert. 

Roddick, meanwhile, had a hit with former NBA star Bruce Bowen and also welcomed members of the Harlem Globetrotters onto the court.

“Incredible day at the white house!” tweeted Sock, the US Open Mixed Doubles champion. “Great experience and atmosphere with all the athletes! #eastereggrollisawesome”

More than 30,000 people took part in the festivities, which began with the traditional egg rolling race on the South Lawn.
