Community Tennis Association of the Year

CTA that has supported USTA South Carolina through USTA Tennis programs, tournaments, leagues, and volunteer work.

Public Tennis Inc.

A USTA Community Tennis Association is any incorporated, geographically defined, not-for-profit, volunteer-based organization that supports or provides programs which promote and develop the growth of tennis.

Public Tennis Inc., located in Beaufort County, is committed to making tennis accessible, to growing tennis as a sport, to supporting those who see tennis as an opportunity for collegiate and professional pursuits, and to bringing the therapeutic, athletic and social benefits of tennis to those with special needs.

From it’s beginning, PTI recognized that despite many private and gated tennis courts and facilities in the greater Hilton Head area, few courts were available for public use. In the early 2000s, PTI raised funds and secured matching funds enabling the Town of Hilton Head to build Chaplin Public Tennis Center.

PTI partners with numerous organizations including Beaufort County Parks and Leisure Services, Beaufort County Schools, The Tennis Association of Hilton Head Island, The Island Recreation Center, The US Professional Tennis Registry (USPTR), SOAR (Special Olympics), South Carolina Special Olympics, Boys and Girls Clubs, and the Beaufort County Disabilities and Special Needs Department.
