NET GENERATION IN THE COMMUNITY
Net Generation is the USTA’s commitment to helping community organizations (parks, after-school programs, community tennis associations, NJTLs, and more), parents, and volunteers build youth tennis programs in your community. Net Generation will provide resources and guidance along the way to make sure you have all of the tools to feel confident in helping kids stay active.
Net Generation encourages kids to challenge themselves. It helps shape the game to individual players, so they can learn at their own speed. Even more importantly, it uses tennis as a pathway to personal development off the court. And for everyone involved, Net Generation creates a strong sense of community for life.
RESOURCES AND PROGRAMS
Community programs under Net Generation are designed to introduce our game to kids (ages 5 – 18) of all abilities in local communities throughout the country. They will be affordable, inclusive, and learn-rally-and-play focused. The easy-to-follow curricula were developed by the USTA, the game’s governing body, with tools and lessons designed to challenge kids in a fun and social way.
