It has been a great year, but we are just getting started.

2018 was another great year for the USTA/Midwest Section! In addition to growing tennis across our section, we were also named 2018 Section of the Year. As we take a look back at 2018, we would like to thank everyone who continues to support our mission daily. See a few highlights from the 2018 Year in Review below, and click here to check out the full Year in Review!

Social Tennis Highlight- Page 40

Sets in the City Program Benefits USTA/Midwest Tennis & Education Foundation

 

As an alternative to League tennis, Social Leagues offer players the opportunity to play in a fun, stress-free setting. They provide an environment of fun, friendly competition, and overall player development. Start/Restart serves as an introductory-session based program for those new to the game or out of the game for a while. Paired with one day events, Team Up events, and Sets in the City, these programs serve as opportunities to practice your game and enjoy social time after.
