Community Tennis Associations (CTAs)

Community Tennis Associations are organziations that reach out to their communities by providing a variety of tennis related programming.  CTAs can gear their programs to children, adults or both, and can focus exclusively on tennis programs or can add educational and/or social components to their programming.  USA Tennis New England has a comprehensive benefits package (listed below)available for its member CTAs.  For more information about forming or registering a CTA, contact Kristen Liteplo or Deirdre Tindall.
