The Cherokee County Tennis Association, Inc. (CCTA) was formed in October 2004 to promote the development of tennis as a means of healthful recreation and physical/mental well being for all residents of Cherokee County, Georgia. The corporation is a non-profit organization incorporated pursuant to the IRS code in Section 501(C)(3) and will work in conjunction with the USTA and other associations to accomplish these goals.
The CCTA serves both children and adults of north Georgia, regardless of race, gender, age, physical ability, ethnicity, language, sexual orientation or socio-economic status.
The CCTA is currently under the direction of a cross-section of residents of the community who serve as Officers, members of the Board of Directors, and advisors of varying ages, race, and background.
The CCTA was granted permission by USTA Georgia to administer USA Team Tennis for Youth and USA League Tennis in April 2005. The CTA was willing to undertake the development of the league play throughout Cherokee County, hoping to expand USTA into the many subdivisions and areas not being served by ALTA or USTA. As with any new organization, change is difficult. Other community tennis associations undertaking this venture have experienced challenges in their first year. CCTA will work tirelessly to grow league play and bring the best tennis programs possible to the citizens of Cherokee County. The volunteers of CTA, with the total support of the USTA, USTA Georgia and USTA Southern Section, as well as the tennis community in Cherokee County, we are confident that we will be able to accomplish our goals.
