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!!

Rally Cats was developed by the United States Tennis Association (USTA) of Tennessee to introduce kids ages 4- 10 to the game of tennis and keep them on the court for years to come. The sessions are an hour long and each program consists of 4-6 hours of instruction over a number of weeks. Rally Cats uses modified equipment better suited for young kids like smaller rackets, pop-up nets, and balls that bounce lower and move slower than a regular tennis ball. This means kids are rallying sooner, getting less frustrated, and having more fun, which is the most important part!

What is Rally Cats Plus? Rally Cats Plus is an introductory tennis program for players aged 11-14 years old. The program follows ability and age appropriate curriculum and uses orange and green dot tennis balls to make the entry into tennis successful and fun for all! Before registering, please contact USTA Tennessee (marissakovach@ustatn.com) to make sure that this program is the right fit for your player!
