NETX Capacity Building Grant Request for 2019       Modified: January 3, 2019

For 2019 NETX intends to increase participation in our tennis community by focusing on communication and bringing awareness of our CTA to Northeast Texas. We plan to do this by:

 

  • Using Social Media and traditional PR to promote USTA-TEXAS

  • keeping our core of volunteer officers and board members

  • adding new officers to increase our skills, resources, and idea base

  • providing resources, training and incentives for our league coordinators, Board and members who “spread the word”

  • focusing on captains, coaches, Club Directors and all the key players that help our leagues grow

  • promoting area tennis happenings like leagues, tournaments, Net Generation, club functions and RBC Challenge

We are requesting $7,500:

​​

  • $2,500 - increase participation from area schools at fun days associated with and spectating at our local professional Tournament, RBC Challenge

  • $1,000 - Continue sponsoring RBC  Challenge at the Bronze, $2,500 level
    (We budgeted $5,000 for this in $2018)

  • $1000 - support and encourage our new JTT Coordinator with special attention to retention in this position.

  • $500 - support Adult league player recognition and especially encourage “first time” players, providing incentive to recruiting these players and developing Lone Star teams.
