Are you passionate about tennis? Are you interested in volunteering for USTA Southern on a committee? Volunteering for tennis is a rewarding opportunity shared by thousands of Americans each year to help grow the game of tennis. Regardless of your skill level, your age, or your background, there are many ways you can serve the sport.

USTA Southern was founded in 1886 and is focused on the development and promotion of tennis within the nine states comprising the USTA Southern Section – Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. It is the largest of 17 sectional associations that make up the United States Tennis Association (USTA), the national governing body of tennis in the United States.

USTA Southern is committed to increasing diversity and inclusiveness in our tennis community.

VOLUNTEERING AT THE USTA SOUTHERN LEVEL

The fundamental role of each USTA Southern committee is to advise the USTA Southern Board of Directors in promoting and developing the growth of tennis. These committees are comprised of volunteers (USTA members), who work with USTA Southern staff to make substantial decisions about USTA programs, initiatives and events and provide recommendations to the Board. The USTA Southern President & CEO appoints all committee chairs and members, who serve a two-year term.

VOLUNTEERING AT THE COMMUNITY LEVEL

Do you want to spread your love of the game to others in your community? Here is an avenue for you to expand tennis where you live. To find your local organizations, we recommend doing an online search for tennis and the USTA in your community. The following are some opportunities for volunteering in your local community:

Community Tennis Associations (CTAs)

A USTA Community Tennis Association (CTA) is "any incorporated, geographically defined, not-for-profit, volunteer-based organization that supports or provides programs which promote and develop the growth of tennis."  As an association, the group works to coordinate and maintain tennis programs and services; guaranteeing that they are open and accessible to all. Fueled by local volunteers, they exist to promote and develop the game of tennis in the community. More info

National Junior Tennis & Learning (NJTL)

The USTA/National Junior Tennis & Learning (NJTL) network is a nation-wide group of more than 600 non-profit youth development organizations that provide free or low cost tennis, education and life skills programming to more than 250,000 children each year. More info

Junior Team Tennis

USTA Junior Team Tennis is designed for kids ages 5-18 and for players of all skill levels. Most coaches are volunteer parents or other adults who organize the team and, in some cases, serve as the on-court coach. More info
