National Tennis Month - May

Like you really need any more reason to get to the tennis court, but just in case you do...May is National Tennis Month! What does that mean for you? Just 31 days to remember one of your true 'LOVES'!

If you're already into this sport, it just means to take advantage of all that the USTA already offers you. From great member benefits on resorts and clubs and discounts to events like the US Open, the BNP Paribas Open and US Open Series events to the ability to play Adult Leagues and USTA tournaments.

Keep in mind, your membership dues directly support the growth and development of the sport and programming in your area! So join or renew online, keep current, and help us out!

The sport of tennis offers boundless opportunities for fun, friendship and fitness for people of all ages. Just follow the life ladder.

Whether you're a new player just starting out with QuickStart Tennis or an NJTL program, playing in our co-ed Jr. Team Tennis leagues, or in college looking to compete in our Tennis on Campus program, we've got something for you. How many sports can honestly say that? We've got all the angles covered for our players...from 6 years old to 106! 

Experience a net rush with tennis!

If you'd like to get involved and help spread the love of this great game, please consider becoming a volunteer with the USTA Southwest. We need great people who love the sport just as much as we do to help us get a racquet in everyone's hand that wants to play.

And for those of you that already love the sport so much, feel free to share your best tennis story and a photo of you playing tennis if you have one! Send them along with your name and location to Marketing and Communications Manager Jeff Sikes at sikes@southwest.usta.com, and we will post all the responses throughout the month.

And don't forget to 'Friend' us on Facebook. Search 'usta southwest' and add us.

See you on the court!
