KCTA is providing Tennis Scholarships
to high school players

KCTA began sponsoring professional instruction for high school players in the summer of 2021.  Since that time more than 400 student athletes have benefitted from up to 15 hours of small group instruction.  This has been made possible through the support of our sponsors and partnerships with local teaching professionals and Bakersfield’s four private clubs.


These scholarship lessons are available to players from every high school in Kern County, but the request must come through the team coach.  Player eligibility will be determined by a demonstrated commitment to the sport, agreement to attend at least 90% of the sessions, and financial need.  There is no cost to the players or their schools.  For more information, contact Jerry Matthews at
