USTA Rally Cats Tennis
The City of Athens Parks and Recreation Department has partnered with the United States Tennis Association (USTA) and Tennessee Wesleyan University tennis teams to host its popular USTA Rally Cats Beginners Tennis Program for ages 4 to 10. The four-week program is usually held in the Spring and Fall, one night per week, at the Ingleside Tennis Complex.
Rally Cats was developed by USTA to provide a fun introduction of tennis for kids and keep them on the court for years to come. Rally Cats use smaller rackets, lower nets, and modified balls, which leads to less frustration and more fun.
