Tennis truly thrives in North Carolina because of our 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 here in North Carolina! Each year the USTA North Carolina honors those who have done an outstanding job on the court and off to help promote our great sport.
