Community Tennis Associations
What is a CTA?
July 24, 2019
USTA Community Tennis Associations are not-for-profit, volunteer-based organizations supporting programs that grow the game of tennis. They are located in towns across the country and are great entry points if you’re looking to get started in the game, to play more often or to give back to our lifetime sport.
First and foremost, CTAs work to coordinate and maintain tennis programs and services, guaranteeing that they are open and accessible to everyone. Those who run CTAs are tennis enthusiasts who act as advocates, program administrators, promoters or fundraisers – and sometimes as all of these things at once.
Community Tennis Associations partner with their communities to help grow tennis at the local level. Here are some benefits available to CTAs:
- Insurance programs: The USTA offers eligible CTAs professional, high-quality insurance programs that give substantial liability coverage with a discounted enrollment contribution.
