Reston Association’s tennis programs are getting a nod from a national organization next month.
The Professional Tennis Registry, a South Carolina-based organization that aims to educate and certify tennis teachers around the world, named RA the “Public Facility of the Year.”
Here’s more from RA on the award and its tennis offerings:
RA tennis programming had a solid 2019, with 550 junior (ages 3-17) lesson-takers from beginners to 4.5-level advanced players. More than 350 adults took lessons. RA works hand-in-hand with the USTA to hosts tournaments for all age groups and levels of play. More than 350 players participate in GWTA, NVTL, Reston Team Tennis and senior leagues. The associatioon also promotes tennis via its scholarship program.
RA has 52 tennis courts across more than 1,300 acres of land, including six permanent courts for children’s tennis.
PTR will present the award at a symposium in South Carolina next month.
