Great Sports Pins
In an effort to promote good behavior and sportsmanship in junior tennis, we are starting our “Great Sports” program at select junior tournaments across the state. Officials will now be able to award good behavior by presenting sportsmanship pins to juniors who exemplify exceptional sportsmanship during a match or tournament.
Examples of pin awards that occurred this past year at trial events:

A total of 26 competed in this year’s Border Battle, the highest number of schools to ever participate in the four years of the tournament’s history.
2015 USTA North Carolina Camp Scholarships
USTA North Carolina is excited to announce our 10th year offering partnerships with six collegiate junior tennis camps. These camps provide North Carolina junior players with the opportunity to learn about tennis from top coaches and athletes at universities across the state.
