Tennis is Elementary Program

The Tennis Is Elementary Program (TIE) is an after-school program designed for elementary students in grades K-6. The program is conducted at each school’s gym, cafeteria, or multipurpose room by using the USTA 10 and Under Tennis format which includes foam or low-compression balls, smaller racquets and a reduced court size. Through a grant from the USTA Foundation, in 2019, we are sponsoring 25 students at Kaley/Lake Cuomo and 30 students at Conway.

Equipment for this program is provided by a donation from the USTA Florida Section Foundation.
