Show up in comfortable workout clothing and tennis shoes and bring something to drink. Loaner racquets are available for those who do not have one. The only expectation is to give it a try and to have fun.

Those who want to continue the Saturday morning lessons may join MACTA whose goal it is to promote the sport of tennis in our area. With a membership, members may participate in the lessons, join a league, or play pick-up singles or doubles, as well as other MACTA events. Through a membership, players will be put in touch with other tennis players of their skill level.

Tennis is a lifetime sport that helps improve aerobic fitness levels, increase speed and agility, develop strength and flexibility, and refine eye-hand coordination. It also provides opportunities to enjoy exercise and meet new friends. MACTA players range in age from early twenties through late sixties.
