WHAT IS DCTA?

The Downeast Community Tennis Association (DCTA) is the local USTA Community Tennis Association.  Our DCTA is guided by the mission to serve our community by promoting health and wellness through the love of tennis.  It is a not-for-profit organization that supports programs that grow the game of tennis in Pitt County and is run by local volunteers

First and foremost, we are tennis enthusiasts who help advocate, administrate, promote play, and work to coordinate and maintain tennis programs and services in Pitt County.  Our efforts are focused on guaranteeing that the sport is open and accessible to everyone.  Tennis for all.

CTAs are funded through local league play and are eligible for several grants to help promote tennis in our communities.  Last year in North Carolina, over $200,000 was distributed in grant money to CTAs.\\\

The Downeast Community Tennis Association is led by a Board of Directors.  The Board members can be nominated by any member of the organization and are elected by the board to serve a two-year term.  The officers include a President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary.  There are several subcommittees to organize the volunteer efforts.  Meetings are held quarterly and are open to the public. 

DCTA plays a critical role in the growth of local tennis. At our best, we are advocates and connectors within our community. We partner with numerous tennis stakeholders, such as private clubs, local retailers, schools, businesses, and municipalities to support, deliver, and improve tennis offerings and overall health and wellness. The graphic below illustrates the many ways DCTA serves our community.
