School & Classroom Resources
At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, USTA North Carolina worked to compile numerous resources that promote tennis in education. The resources below provide opportunities to incorporate tennis across all areas of study.
BEYOND THE CLASSROOM
There are many avenues to become involved with tennis beyond the classroom. Learn more about programming that may be best for your students (or teachers!) below.
TRY TENNIS (ADULTS & JUNIORS)
Try Tennis is an instructional tennis program for adult and junior beginners. The goal of this program is to attract individuals who have never played tennis before or haven't picked up a racket in years! Once on the court, a tennis pro or an instructor will help you learn enough basic skills to play a beginner match. Let us help you "Go From Couch to Court in Six Hours."
JUNIOR TEAM TENNIS
Junior Team Tennis brings together boys and girls, ages 6 to 18, to play singles, doubles and mixed doubles against other coed teams. Beyond being fun and a great form of exercise, Junior Team Tennis is a competitive, level-based environment that promotes individual growth, social growth and life skills.
There are multiple tennis opportunities for parents and teachers, along with other adults in your life, to play tennis.
Some of these opportunities include USTA League Tennis, Adult Tournaments, Y'ALL League (30 & Under League), and the Fireball Bar League.
