It is with deep regret that the summer youth programs organized through GMTA will be cancelled for the 2020 summer. This includes the MYTT, Quann Camp and Rising Stars programming and potentially our USTA Branded Junior Flex League. Concerns regarding how to ensure safe social distancing on the tennis court with children in the elementary and middle school ages, and the present recommendation for singles-play only by USTA, the GMTA Board of Directors, along with program coordinators, feel that the risk is too high to the community and the uncertainty of the path of the virus makes it challenging to know how the summer will play out. All of our programs take a lot of work and planning to organize. A recent decision by MMSD to maintain school recreational property closed until August 1st has also created difficulty in obtaining the space that we rely on to bring affordable programs to Madison. This especially impacted the Rising Stars program.
We hope everyone can be healthy and safe this summer and look forward to seeing you as soon as we are safely able to.
The Greater Madison Tennis Association (GMTA) consists of tennis enthusiasts from the Madison, Wisconsin area. GMTA (a non-profit organization) has been active in Madison for over 25 years and has over 300 members. We hold tournaments & indoor tennis parties. We organize and direct programs for Juniors.
Madison is a great place to be a tennis player. We are blessed with an ample supply of public courts in our parks and schools. The University of Wisconsin adds dozens more, while we are home to one of the nation’s premiere indoor tennis facilities, UW’s Nielsen Tennis Center. We also have three commercial tennis centers, giving Madison a total of 34 indoor courts.
The GMTA has existed for many years as a community resource for providing tennis programming and events. We are a membership-based organization, and hope that you will consider supporting the Association by joining us. Details about our various programs are published on this site.
There are also many excellent tennis programs for children in the Madison area. The Junior Programs section of this site is designed to give you this information in a quick and easily-used resource.
We hope it will, in its own small way, help make Madison an even better place to be a tennis player.
