|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.
Find a CTA
USTA North Carolina is pleased that our Community Tennis Associations have realized the benefits of developing their own web sites. To encourage this new communication tool, we are providing links here to these sites.
If you would like for your local Association to have a web presence, ask them to contact the NCTA office. We are happy to help in any way possible.
North Carolina High School Coaches Workshop
USTA North Carolina teamed up with UNCG and the North Carolina High School Athletic Association to organize a North Carolina High School Coaches Workshop! Over 100 coaches from around the state attended the event and participated in various drills and training exercises. This workshop covered everything from correct player form and technique, to properly managing practices.
Widen the Base Grant
In an effort to continue to reach out to new players/potential players, USTA North Carolina is offering the “Widen the Base” grant. It is for CTA’s and agencies to apply for in order to do the work they need to do this year. No grant will be given to an individual, but will be given to an organization, preferably one that is a 501C3.
