KCTA is providing Tennis Scholarships to high school players
KCTA is piloting a lesson scholarship program this summer which will provide professional instruction to aspiring high school players who would not otherwise have such access. The instruction will be provided by the teaching professionals at Bakersfield's four private clubs and is made possible through a collective effort by those professionals, their clubs and KCTA. This pilot program will provide 10 groups of approximately 6 players with group lessons over the course of the summer break.
The lesson scholarships are available to players from every high school in Kern County, but the request must come from the player's team coach. Player Eligibility will be determined by a demonstrated commitment to the sport, an agreement to attend at least 90% of the sessions, and financial need. there will be no cost to the student athletes. If interested, please contact Jerry Matthews at
Members of the Kern Tennis Community,
Kern Community Tennis Association is preparing to help local high schools and their tennis athletes return to their normal athletic schedules for the fall. Many student tennis athletes would not be able to participate on their school's tennis team without the support from KCTA that is made possible by YOU! While we will always gratefully accept your monetary donations, we are actively collecting tennis equipment over the next few weeks.
Please place your gently used racquets, shoes, clothing, and other tennis gear in the bright green boxes at any of the four tennis clubs. Your donations will be collected, refurbished as necessary, and placed in the hands (and on the feet) of those who need what you no longer do.
Thank you for your faithful support!
KCTA Board of Directors
