National Tennis Month Events

Ron Cioffi | June 01, 2022

Thank you to all the CTAs, NJTLs, public facilities and parks & recreation organizations for partnering with us to celebrate National Tennis Month (NTM)! 

 

There were nearly 200 events in USTA Southern's nine states. State and local governments were generous in their support and proclamations of May as National Tennis Month. We've collected 139 photos in our Facebook gallery. Click here to see these images of hundreds of NTN participants and organizers.
