Central Illinois Tennis Association
Center Court Tennis Academy
Barrington Area Tennis Association
In the spring of 2018, the Barrington Area Tennis association conducted a pilot afterschool tennis program for the Boys and Girls Club of Dundee Township affiliate at Sunny Hill Elementary School in Carpentersville. This 6-week program was a popular one for the 4th and 5th graders who participated. The Boys & Girls Club of Dundee Township is one of the largest in Illinois serving nearly 3,000 students. BATA intends to continue the program at Sunny Hill and to expand the program to the six other school Clubs in the Dundee Township organization.
Our goal is to then provide these students with the means to participate in additional lesson and play opportunities BATA offers through its full summer program whether through scholarship for lessons, assistance with transportation to courts, and equipment needs.
