OPAF wheelchair tennis training and clinics
The Orthotic and Prosthetic Activities Foundation (OPAF) is bringing five tennis clinics to the Carolinas over the next two months. OPAF is partnering with USTA North Carolina, USTA South Carolina and USTA Wheelchair to offer trainings for teaching pros, therapists, and wheelchair and adaptive tennis players.
2015 Raise the Net
The USTA North Carolina Board of Directors passed a historic plan in January of 2011 to impact the growth of Tennis in our state. Due to the ever expanding tennis public in NC, the Board created a special reserve account for 2011 to impact refurbishing public tennis facilities in NC. The Board voted in January of 2014 to continue this plan. This account, along with matching USTA funds, will allow a total investment of up to $200,000 in assistance throughout our state.
