Tennis in Schools

Net Generation is the youth brand of the USTA and embraces all aspects of youth play for kids aged 5 – 18. The objective of Net Generation is to have millions of kids connected to the sport. Net Generation will also be a platform to celebrate individuality and champion’s self-expression. We believe we can inspire a new generation of tennis players, providers (coaches, organizers, etc.) and parents. The brand attributes revolve around: Empowerment, Unity and Play. It puts more emphasis on learning through play and building character on and off the court, not just drills and competition. Plus, Net Generation is dedicated to all kids safety, with a guarantee of all of our registered coaches and providers having a background check conducted by the National Center For Safety Initiatives (NCSI), the only background screening company endorsed by the National Council of Youth Sports.

Tennis Providers may register for a free account to gain access to tools such as the Program Management Center, educational support, and Net Generation Coaching App.

We currently offer many local community clubs in the New Orleans Area an opportunity to enhance their existing tennis programs through loaner equipment.

We look forward to partnering with several elementary and middle schools throughout the New Orleans area.

Kids’ Tennis Clubs are perfect for recess or after school.  They combine superfixed play with minimal instruction.  No courts are required, and kid-friendly equipment is ideal for beginners in gymnasiums, playgrounds, and other spaces.

Kids Club Matching Equipment Grant is for Elementary Schools that organize a Kids Tennis Club.  The USTA Southern will make an equipment purchase equal to the dollar amount a school spends for tennis equipment for its Kids Tennis Club.  See contact information below on how to apply for grant.

Physical Education Programs help you achieve your school’s health and wellness goals through tennis!  No courts are required and schools can effectively offer PE with tennis sized right for age and ability.
