Anne Koterba, Board President of GACTA and league coordinator, 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 teach students 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 2022, the program included seven private and public middle schools and approximately 170 students participated. The 2023 season will begin with practices starting towards the end of March. Dual matches are planned to begin on Friday, March 24th or March 31st, and will continue through early 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 each school’s team. Most matches will be held on Fridays at various tennis facilities in the Gainesville area.
