Want to have fun, build healthy hearts, and grow tennis in our community? Then you should Run for Racquets - A Virtual 5K!
For every 5K registrant that lives in the USTA Southern Section (that's us!), a racquet will be donated to a local tennis organization. This event is VIRTUAL, and you can run or walk between February 26-28. Registration is $25 per person and all proceeds will furnish racquets and grow tennis locally through the Southern Tennis Foundation.
When filling out your registration form, be sure to list the Raleigh Tennis Association under "Local CTA/NJTL affiliation, if any?" to ensure racquets get into our community.
For the virtual 5k, all funds received will be funneled to the development of tennis in local communities throughout the nine states of USTA Southern. To that end, no t-shirts or medals will be part of this 5k.
