The USTA Southern Section has long been a leader in the growth of wheelchair tennis. The first tournament was held in Atlanta in 1983. The following year the tournament was taken over by ALTA, the largest individual tennis association within the United States. In 1984 Nashville, TN and Natchez, MS held tournaments and in 1985 the Roho/PTR was introduced. These tournaments continue today and are sanctioned by the International Tennis Federation as well as the USTA and remain the top tournaments in the Section. The staff at USTA Southern, wheelchair committee members, state coordinators, teaching pros and the many volunteers have been responsible for the success of tournaments and programs the Southern Section now enjoys.
