SIERRA JUNIOR TENNIS ASSOCIATION
A Community Tennis Association (CTA) and National Junior Tennis & Learning (NJTL) Program
The Sierra Junior Tennis Association is a 501(C)3 organization founded in 1992 as a Community Tennis Association (CTA).
As a CTA, our goal is to grow the sport of tennis among the youth in Northern Nevada and Lake Tahoe through junior tennis programs and tournaments. Over the years, our programs have expanded to include intensive camps, team tennis, and support for our high school players. We have also established a program for our adaptive athletes.
In 2017, we were honored to become a member of the USTA Foundation's National Junior Tennis & Learning (NJTL) program. As a result, we have been able to expand our offering to bring tennis and education programs to the under-resourced youth in our community and offer numerous free community programs throughout the summer. Importantly, we also offer in-school and after-school programs and partner with like-minded partners in our region.
To provide charitable and educational programs to promote the development of junior tennis as a means of healthful recreation and physical fitness in the Northern Nevada/Lake Tahoe region.
