Tennis in Your School


USTA School Tennis:

You help shape the future of the kids you teach every day, and tennis is an excellent sport to help you in that mission. Studies show that youth who play tennis are more likely to engage in healthy behaviors and volunteer in the community. The USTA created the Net Generation suite of tools and resources with you in mind and with your help, we can inspire kids to get active—and stay active! 


Learn the basics of tennis right at school in either your PE class or After School Clinics with Net Generation! 


Register your school at USTA.com to receive FREE equipment & curricula! K-12 curricula is SHAPE approved and easily adopted for most PE class sizes. Schools can also register their offering of a tennis based PE class or an after school tennis clinic for grades K-12 by following these simple instructions.



Net Generation Schools Training Sessions:

Schools training sessions are conducted by USTA trained facilitators and are designed to show physical educators how to teach tennis in a PE class, using the provided curricula and equipment. This training includes on court play and a 15-minute online portion. These training sessions have been adapted to offer either an online or a live option. 


The workshop meets school district requirements for continuing education credits.


Through USTA, teachers can register their programs and receive access to free Net Generation teaching tools, such as, the NetGen App, Grade Based Curricula and when becoming  a community partner, a free equipment kit with 30 racquets, 36 red felt balls and other tennis equipment!



Want to offer something special for your School Assembly or Field Day?


Let us come to your school and get your students excited about the game. We can demo grade-appropriate tennis class for your students, participate with a station at your Field Day or come for individual PE teacher training to help you get your class started correctly. 

We will also help train your high school team to be good community tennis instructors, enabling them to offer after-school clinics for the younger student population. This will help them with community service hour requirements and could help raise money for your high school tennis team.
