TennisWorks in the Schools

 TennisWorks in the Schools

CORTA is affiliated with the USTA as the CTA responsible for promoting and developing tennis in Columbus and the surrounding counties.  The primary purpose of CORTA programs is to promote tennis to the general public as a means to improve the overall social welfare through healthful recreation and physical fitness.

CORTA has partnered with USTA Georgia to assist local schools with the implementation of tennis in the PE curriculum as well as provide an opportunity for students to further their involvement with tennis after school in Kid's Tennis Clubs. 

CORTA will provide each school with additional assistance with the implementation of their in school and/or after-school Kid's Tennis Club.

USTA Georgia Amanda Tobin conducts a Tennis Teacher In-service for area PE teachers!

On Tuesday, March 12th USTA GA Jr. Recreation Coordinator Amanda Tobin came to Columbus to conduct a 3 hour tennis teacher in-service for all Muscogee Co. Elementary PE teachers, as well as some private school PE teachers.  Teachers were given some great instructional games and techniques to use with their students.  Along with that, each teacher  received a training manual with specific lesson plans for teaching tennis to their PE classes.  

Each school was encouraged to obtain a USTA Member Organization membership to receive equipment grants up to $150.  Each school that signs up as a Member Organization and  implements an after school Kid's Tennis Club will receive an equipment grant of up to $200 as well a Tennis Skillastics game.
