SATA has been involved in an inner-city initiative since 2002. We want to bring youngsters from all cultural and ethnic backgrounds into the game of tennis. In particular, we strive to reach populations who do not have access to recreational tennis opportunities.
Presently, our inner-city program consists of two phases: 1. Our school year programs in several public school and church locations 2. Our summer camp programs, which we began in 2004 in partnership with the City of Savannah. These six week camps are offered at various courts throughout Savannah in the months of July and August.
Hundreds of children have participated in these structured programs aimed at developing beginning tennis skills in an atmosphere of fun and fair competition. The goal is to bring this healthful - sport of a lifetime - to an underserved group of children.
