RUN FOR RACQUETS; A VIRTUAL 5K WITH COMMUNITY IMPACT

The Charlotte Tennis Association (CTA) Board of Directors is inviting all tennis enthusiasts to join us in participating in an event sponsored by the Southern Tennis Foundation (STF) – Run for Racquets, a virtual 5K with community impact.

Donated racquets will distributed to area schools and after school programs. Click on Read More for more info.

Knowing we can’t all run together at the same time in the same place, the virtual 5K allows you to choose your day and time to run the weekend of February 26-28.

The event is scheduled to coincide with American Health Month. Tennis is recognized as the top sport for health benefits with studies showing the life-expectancy of tennis players is increased by 9.7 years. Additionally, playing racquet sports decreased the risk of death by 56 percent.
