The Southern California Tennis Association (SCTA) has an ever-evolving relationship with the Community Tennis Associations (CTAs) in the section. On May 6th at the LA84 Foundation facility in Los Angeles, twenty-six CTAs received grants for 2015.
“I was very pleased to hold the meeting at the Foundation, with whom the SCTA has such a long and strong relationship,” said Melanie Bischoff, SCTA Director of Community Tennis. “Thirty people turned out for the gathering. These are the individuals who are doing some great things for tennis in their local communities. The great thing is those, in this group, come from all over Southern California. They are really making a difference in what is taking place when it comes to increasing participation and providing everyone with more opportunities to play tennis.”
