The Raleigh Tennis Association (RTA) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization established in 2004 and supported by volunteers within the Raleigh community. The RTA operates under the umbrella of the United States Tennis Association (USTA) and in conjunction with the North Carolina Tennis Association (NCTA). We also work with the Raleigh Tennis Foundation (RTF) in our mission which is: to promote the game of tennis in the city of Raleigh and raise funds for junior programs and local charity organizations. We strive to grow tennis awareness in the communities we serve by facilitating adult, junior and special need leagues and tournaments. The RTA continually works with the USTA/NCTA , local tennis organizations and clubs, and the City of Raleigh Parks and Recreation's Tennis program, to respond to the needs of our tennis community. Our goals include the following:
Provide a united front with the Raleigh Tennis Foundation as one voice for the growth and development of community wide tennis and have the backing of the USTA and NCTA.
Provide a not-for-profit, volunteer-based tennis organization that supports or generates programs that promote and develop the growth of tennis.
Provide a RTA Advisory Board made up of local tennis clubs.
Organize a group of dedicated volunteers and professionals who come together to support our community tennis programs.
Work to coordinate and maintain programs and services and guarantee they are open and accessible to all.
Work with the Wake County School system to provide funds for tennis equipment and clinics for elementary and middle schools in conjunction with the NCTA.
We will raise through league fees, sponsorships, and charity tournaments to help us offer programs and leagues to youth, adults and special populations.
Utilize our RTA website and other venues to market and promote tennis events
