The Raleigh Tennis Association (RTA) is an approved NJTL Chapter and supported by the USTA Foundation. The purpose of the NJTL Network is to provide tennis instruction and academic programming to need-based youth. RTA’s mission is to grow and develop youth through our NJTL programs and outreach.
RTA’s NJTL responds to the needs of hundreds of underserved youth. In many cases, our programming offers youth their first exposure to tennis and provides additional opportunities for life-long learning through clinics, tournaments, and supplemental academic coursework. 100% of the proceeds will support programming for the RTA’s NJTL Chapter!
