Are you passionate about tennis? Are you interested in volunteering for USTA Southern on a committee? Volunteering for tennis is a rewarding opportunity shared by thousands of Americans each year to help grow the game of tennis. Regardless of your skill level, your age, or your background, there are many ways you can serve the sport.
USTA Southern was founded in 1886 and is focused on the development and promotion of tennis within the nine states comprising the USTA Southern Section – Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. It is the largest of 17 sectional associations that make up the United States Tennis Association (USTA), the national governing body of tennis in the United States. ADVERTISEMENT
Volunteering for tennis can mean serving on a committee, teaching youth tennis in a public park, raising money for scholarships, and much more. There are many ways in which you can serve the game and make an impact at every level. Most volunteers start at the local levels and then progress to the state and sectional levels. Check out how you can get involved as a volunteer.
