The ATA National Championship Tournament is celebrating it's 100th anniversary this year by taking players back to where it all started - Druid Hill Park in Baltimore, MD. Read more here.
Since 1916, The Pacific Coast Championships, originally the WESTERN FEDERATION OF TENNIS CLUBS, and the ATA have joined forces to promote tennis among People of Color. After 100 years, we have produced legends such as Althea Gibson, Arthur Ashe and Zina Garrison. Our true legacy, however, will be the countless young people whose vision, education and horizons have been broadened and whose lives have been changed because they learned, and had a chance to play tennis.
Considering the benefits so many youth have garnered from being offered the opportunity to play tennis, the PCCTA has partnered with several other Western Section non-profits and embarked on a Crusade to send a group of children to the 100th ATA National Championship Tournament in Baltimore, MD this July. In addition to being able to compete against some of the best players in their age groups, this trip will give those selected a glimpse of our Nation's Capitol as we will also take them to some of the popular sites in the DC area - the White House, National Mall, MLK Monument, and the NMAAHC - as time permits.
