If you are a tennis professional in the area looking to connect with students, please contact CATA. Our goal is to support the growth of tennis in the area.

The Conway Area Tennis Association coordinates with the local schools to encourage tennis and tennis programs.  For instance, Conway High School hosts a tournament every fall and hopes to have more.

• Conway Open Tournament
(CHS fundraiser tournament) – Past year had 72 kids from the surrounding areas. 2 day tournament with Doubles on Friday and Singles on Saturday. Average of 5 kids for overnight stay.

• CHS Spring Tournament
CHS would like to start hosting a spring tournament to keep kids involved.

School coaches can also support CATA’s goals by promoting and forming teams for the Junior Team tennis programs.  If your child is interested in JTT, have them contact their school coach or your local JTT coordinator.

Guess what day it is? It's hump day! Last year, we had over 175 entrants in the Conway Regional Tennis Classic. We are almost half way there! Help us get over the hump and meet our goal of having at least as many players as last year.

Why wait? Get 'er done! It's going to be a great time. #playconwaytennis
