HELP US FIX OUR COURTS!!!

Let’s Get Some Courts Resurfaced!!

We can use your help!! Courts 1, 2, 5 & 6 desperately need to be resurfaced. JWTTA I had raised $8000 which covers courts 1 & 2. USTA TN has donated $2000 (thank you)! So it’s up to us players to donate the other $5000. Anything helps! Also it’s tax deductible since JWTTA is a 501c3. 

Donate by sending to JWTTA’s Venmo – @jwtta or mail a check to:

Jackson West-TN Tennis, P.O. Box 10601, Jackson, TN 38308

DRAWS FOR WEDNESDAY ARE POSTED

Be sure to check the schedule as we have matches starting at 6:00 PM and 7:30 PM. Players should report to the courts 30 minutes before match and check in at desk.

USTA Virtual Run for Racquets

USTA Virtual 5K – Run for Racquets

Please help us put Racquets in the Hands of Children! USTA Southern will donate a racquet to Jackson for our underserved kids as well as funds being donated to the USTA Southern Foundation and the Tennessee Patrons Foundation! These foundations are the charitable arm of USTA that help to bring tennis to underserved populations and other things to support those in need. Please sign up for the Virtual 5K to put a racquet in a child’s hands and help some.

Isn’t this better than getting a tshirt or a medal – to put the money for your entry fee to help people!!! (Shhhh– we won’t tell if you don’t actually run it!) Help us support others!!
