Hudson Tennis Association

The Hudson Tennis Association (HTA) located in Hudson, Wisc., is a nonprofit organization devoted to promoting opportunities for residents of all ages and abilities in the city of Hudson and the surrounding St. Croix River Valley to learn and play the life-long sport of tennis.
The HTA, first founded in 2017, is run entirely by volunteers, focused primarily on youth-development. The USTA helped the HTA secure modified racquets, and low compression tennis balls to properly engage the younger demographic in its programs.
The HTA’s “Little Pro” Tennis Camp, held in June and July each year, serves more than 25 5 to 10-year-olds, and the Middle School competitive tennis program gets middle school aged children on the court. Besides the youth demographic, HTA’s “Rally the Family Day,” gets the whole family on the court for tennis fun.ADVERTISEMENT
“What our volunteers in the HTA are finding is that we’re accomplishing our goal of developing a passion for the life-long sport of tennis, which will benefit them for the rest of their lives,” said John Knutson, President of the HTA.
