USTA SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
WE ACHIEVE MORE TOGETHER.
Community providers play a critical role in delivering tennis programming to children across Southern California, often reaching underserved communities and serving as the first point of entry for budding young tennis players. As a tennis provider–including NJTL chapters and Community Tennis Associations–programs within our section receive essential benefits that help foster and maintain the growth of tennis in our local communities.

“The idea is to go all the way however they want to do it. If it's just high school, college, or even go pro. We would like to have them to grow in the sport as much as they want to!”
