OPEN for REGISTRATION - 2007 Tennis in the Parks Initiative

General information can be found at

Nearly 70% of tennis is played on public courts and park and recreation agencies play an important role in the health of this lifetime sport.

The jointly developed and implemented Tennis in the Parks (TIP) initiative is an effort to increase access to quality public tennis facilities and opportunities for the public to enjoy the sport. The essence of this initiative is to assist park and recreation agencies in leveraging their tennis facilities to promote lifelong healthy activity and improve their programming by advancing the latest tennis innovations for all program types.

TIP is focused on the following:

  • Quality programming from instruction, team tennis and league play to marketing and partnerships.
  • Tennis facility infrastructure
  • Sustainability in the public sector by developing an unprecedented advocacy agenda to include tennis facility master plans, support community projects that include tennis, and building a network of tennis advocates improving the tennis infrastructure.

How Do I Become a TIP Community?

In order to benefit from the resources offered through Tennis in the Parks, each community organization must complete the online pre-assessment. The pre-assessment is made available once a year and is designed to assess the needs of each community for resource allocation. The pre-assessment also qualifies your community to apply for public facility funding.

Existing TIP partners will be contacted by phone from a NRPA staff member between November 1st and December 31st to complete the 2007 renewal.
