Tennis truly thrives in North Carolina because of its many dedicated players and supporters. Without the loyalty of players, officials, volunteers, friends and family, tennis would not be in the great shape it is across the state. USTA North Carolina’s annual awards consist of a total of 38 awards, seven of which were awarded in October during the Community Development Workshop.
