As many of you know, our 2017 "ATA Bound" program was a HUGE SUCCESS! The PCCTA partnered with other groups and individuals to raise $25,000, which enabled us to take 15 kids to compete in the 100th ATA National Championship Tournament. Our athletes, ranging in age from 9 - 17 years old, fought hard and did very well, competing against the best and the brightest from across the country and the Caribbean. We were also able to visit our Nation's Capitol to see some of the most popular sites. These children's lives were impacted in very positive ways (BTW, the performance of 2 of our older girls was so impressive that they were offered scholarships to Morgan State University!
On the heels of last year's success, we're doing it again this year: Our new 2018 Program, "DESTINATION: ATA" ( or DATA) will host 16 more juniors, ages 9 - 18, as they travel to Orlando, FL to "wage war" at the USTA NATIONAL CAMPUS! With your generous support we will make a positive difference in more lives!

COME CHEER THEM ON ...AND JOIN IN... AS THEY GET READY FOR THE 2018 ATA NATIONALS
DATA KIDS BOOTCAMP
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.
