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
