2004 Team Tennis Rebate Program

Wisconsin District Clubs, CTAs, & Park & Recreation Programs are invited to apply for funding for two programs approved by the WTA at it’s March Management meeting.  Both are intended to encourage youth teams to register online for USA Team Tennis or Ralleyball programs.  This is the first year that a $15 USTA membership is required of players in over-12 leagues.

1.       WTA will rebate coaches/organizations $5 per player for up to 10 players per team after their rosters are turned in to and approved by their league coordinator, and submitted by the coordinator to the WTA office.  Players must be registered online by August 1st to qualify for the rebate.  Summer programs of USA Team Tennis are encouraged to apply for this funding.

2.       Ralleyball tennis teams are intended to provide an active format for 6-11 year old tennis players to be combined with tennis lessons.  Teams of 6 players score points each time a ball crosses the net and lands in the court.  After each point, 2 of the 4 players on the court are replaced by teammates.  Balls are fed by parents/coaches.  To promote more Ralleyball programs and fun formats for players of the younger ages, the WTA will refund the cost of Cartoon Network Tennis Kits ($60) to Park & Recs who establish a Ralleyball League of at least 4 teams (24 players).  Ralleyball players also need to be registered online ($2) but do not need to join the USTA.  The 4 rosters will be submitted to the WTA for reimbursement.  This promotion available to the first 50 requests by clubs, CTAs, or Park & Recs. Note:  Organizations must be current, paid, USTA members in order to qualify for the rebate program.
