The Mid-Columbia Tennis Association (MCTA) is seeking community partnerships and sponsors to support our mission statement to help grow the lifelong sport of tennis in the Mid-Columbia region by providing needed equipment, opportunity and resources.
Each year MCTA supports various community- and school-based tennis programs and activities throughout the Mid-Columbia and handles a variety of requests from coaches, teachers, and community organizations.
MCTA would like to foster community partnerships by getting involved in and giving back to the community through outreach programs that provide mutual values with your organization. We are interested to connect and learn more about your needs and see how we can help build positive experience for your organization and collaborate about other future opportunities.
HOW CAN MCTA PARTER WITH YOU?
Connect – Learn about an organization’s mission and share how the mission of the MCTA can provide a partnership to fostering the health and well-being of all ages through tennis.
Serve – MCTA would like to provide a tennis activity (1-hour to 90 minutes) designed for all ages using the ABC’s of Agility, Balance, and Coordination.
Promote – MCTA can promote safety and core values for an organization by fostering good sportsmanship, building teamwork, and promoting a positive self-esteem for all participants.
Grow – MCTA can help inspire the next generation with a spark of enthusiasm for playing tennis and generally leading a healthy lifestyle.
Build – MCTA can advocate the benefits of tennis for area residents, parks and recreation, and schools and work to build more and renovate existing courts or facilities in the community.
Ambassadors play an integral part in the success of our mission to grow the sport of tennis. Tennis ambassadors are a diverse group that includes male and female, young and old, novice and expert. The common denominator is a love of the game that is nearly irresistible to the friends, family, neighbors, coworkers and acquaintances that they encounter in daily life.
MCTA values tennis ambassadors that truly embody the grassroots tennis movement. Ambassadors share their story and fill the gaps of coverage often missed from more traditional tennis outlets. Finally, ambassadors can support board members through various outreach programs and help tennis newcomers to have a great first experience.
Craig Morris, USTA CEO of Community Tennis states:
“The tennis ambassadors provide a great service for local facilities and organizations who want to connect with more people in the community. In today's times and with the ease of playing tennis safely, we are excited to support this partnership with facilities to encourage new and returning players to get out and play.”
