Nominate by May 1 For Prestigious Awards

Don’t forget to submit nominations by May 1 for two important and prestigious community tennis awards. The CTA of the Year Award honors a Community Tennis Association for outstanding service in growing and developing the sport of tennis in its community, and the Eve Kraft Community Service Award is given to individuals who bring the game of tennis to everyone who wants to play.

“We want to see nominations for both awards from all USTA sections,” says Jane Morrill, leader of the Awards Project Team for the USTA’s CTA Committee. “We would especially encourage those who submitted strong nominations in the past that did not win to re-submit.”

While nominations for both awards are accepted year-round, May 1 is the deadline for applications to be considered for the current year’s awards, which will be presented early in 2013 at the USTA Community Tennis Development Workshop.
