The Training Committee put the following list of books, manuals, videos and papers together with great assistance from the USTA Southern Section State Executive Directors. This library of resource material is by no means complete and will be updated continuously. For this to be accomplished, we ask for your assistance in suggesting training materials for us to add. If your idea has anything to do with training, we are interested. Please email Mary Hatfield with any suggestions.

You are encouraged to check out the books from this list if you are a Section or State volunteer. To do so, please contact Sandy at the above email address or call the USTA Southern Section office at 770-368-8200. The materials will then be forwarded to you and you may keep them for one month. At that time, please return them to the USTA Southern Section office to Sandy's attention. Thank you and please enjoy!
