School Tennis

Representatives from the USTA North Carolina teach PE teachers fun tennis games and activities to use with people of all ages. The teachers are taught how to safely introduce the lifetime sport to their students without tennis courts or a large amount of equipment. It is a very active program in which the teachers participate in all of the games and drills.

USTA School Tennis

Fun, safe, easy, no courts required!

USTA School Tennis provides in-school and extracurricular programming (Net Generation) for students in grades K-12. The primary goals of the program are a positive first-time experience, perceived competence, fun and fitness. Another important element is to help schools meet their health and wellness requirements.
