Tennis in Schools
Bringing tennis to your school and community can create a lifelong environment of health and wellness, confidence and fun. Whether it is during a physical education class or an after school no-cuts team our programs are very adaptable to the needs of your school.
Everything You Need
The USTA partners with kids and organizers to help kids learn the sport of tennis and build self-confidence within a community. Several resources are provided by the USTA to make this goal a reality.
The USTA provides teacher in-services, tennis workshops and coaches workshops to ensure that organizers are receiving the proper training.
The proper age appropriate equipment for all skill levels can be received through highly discounted programs and equipment grants for qualifying schools.
Assistance can be provided for a start-up curriculum as well as professional advice on converting play areas into tennis courts.
Get your new program started with a grant to purchase new and easy to use equipment. Grants are provided to qualifying schools.
Tennis in Physical Education
The USTA can provide an easy to start curriculum for organizers that want to get a tennis program started in physical education classes. The Physical Educators Guide for Teaching Tennis in Schools and the Teacher Training Program are two easy ways to get a tennis program started and feel comfortable teaching tennis to your students.
Extracurricular Tennis Programs are provided by schools that want to give everyone in their community an opportunity to participate in healthy, life-long activities. These extracurricular activities give students the opportunity to take tennis to the next level outside of physical education tennis classes. In an Extracurricular Tennis Program students accelerate at tennis in a safe and supportive atmosphere.
No-Cuts School Tennis Team
No-Cuts School Tennis Teams give all students of all skill levels the opportunity to represent their school colors. Because these are no-cut programs, all students will be given the opportunity to progress and engage in play with their peers and other schools. These programs build self-confidence and create a healthy and fun competitive environment for all students.
