Tennis advocacy

ACTA is interested in promoting tennis at every level. Our involvement is diverse. We sponsor lessons for youth that cannot afford them. We work with the County to help maintain the 26 public tennis facilities within Arlington, and we will work on long range planning to ensure that we will always have a place to play.
