Harrison Carter, 7, of Dunwoody wasn't paired with the most talented tennis player in the world at the White House Monday, April 21, but perhaps one of the most famous. Per 11Alive, Carter played doubles alongside President Barack Obama during the annual event. 

During their time in the White House, Barack and Michelle Obama have used the event to promote their childhood fitness agenda, and this year was no exception, featuring a theme of "Hop Into Healthy, Swing Into Shape."

More than 30,000 people participated in this year's event. 

The annual egg roll has been a Washington, D.C. tradition on Easter Monday since 1814. Originally it took place on the U.S. Capitol Lawn, reportedly by then first lady Dolley Madison. 

It was moved to the White House by President Rutherford B. Hayes, after the Capitol received a new lawn in 1877. It fell out of favor during the presidency of Franklin D. Roosevelt, and was resurrected by Mamie Eisenhower.
