Remember – Tennis is a sport which can be enjoyed by all regardless of age, ability, gender or social background. In Barbados, it is now accessible to more individuals through the Schools Tennis Initiative Development Programmes in primary and senior schools and programmes at the National Tennis Centre in Wildey, St. Michael.
The Barbados Tennis Association is the governing body of tennis in the island and oversees the development of all aspects of the game.
The Association is determined to welcome more people into the sport, to keep their interest alive and to help all players maximize their full potential.
