USTA Texas is excited to pair up with USTA’s youth brand, Net Generation, to expand and enhance the various play opportunities available to kids across our great state, including our out-of-school programs.
WHY NET GENERATION?
Net Generation is the USTA’s commitment to helping schools, organizations, parents, and volunteers build youth tennis in communities across the country. Our Community Tennis programs are designed to introduce the game to kids of all backgrounds, ages, and abilities by using a “learn, rally, play” format.
Net Generation strives to capture the imaginations of our kids; encourages them to challenge themselves with a new standard of play; and helps shape the game to individual players, so they can learn at their own speed. For providers and parents, Net Generation makes tennis approachable, accessible, and adaptable. ADVERTISEMENT And for kids, it uses tennis as a fun, relevant, and cool pathway to personal development beyond the court!
