Anne Koterba, vice president of GACTA, says the middle school tennis program helps introduce the lifetime sport of tennis to this age group and provide a positive recreational after-school activity for students. “GACTA has the opportunity to work along with the Alachua County school system, as well as private schools, to provide middle school students with a safe, fun and learning atmosphere centered on tennis,” Koterba said. “Tennis helps teachstudents how to live a healthy lifestyle, and this program will give them the skills to play in high school and with their family and friends for the rest of their lives.”

In 2018, the program included eight private and public middle schools and approximately 150 students participated. The 2019 season will begin with practices starting towards the end of March. Dual matches are planned to begin on Friday April 5th, and will continue through mid May. A tournament/play day will conclude the season. Participants will receive clinics from volunteer local tennis teaching professionals at local tennis facilities, and parents will volunteer to captain the each school’s team. Most matches will be held on Fridays at various tennis facilities in the Gainesville area.
