Frequently Asked Questions

Schools

How can I bring MTA to my school?

MTA is always looking to expand into new territory. To bring MTA to your school, contact Marcy at mtatennis@att.net or (203) 521-2663 or Josh at mtajosh@att.net or (203) 521-3892. In addition, please fill out this form to inquire about bringing MTA to your school.

Also, we work with local Parks & Recreation departments or after-care programs to organize before or after-school tennis. We customize any program to fit your school’s needs.

What do we need from MTA?

MTA will provide you with everything to bring tennis to your school. This includes a detailed program proposal and customized tennis registration form. In addition, we can provide all instructor background checks via www.sentrylink.com or a copy of MTA’s certificate of liability insurance. Any other form of documentation will be provided at the school’s request.

We don't have tennis courts. Can we still have MTA at my school?

No tennis courts? No problem! Using portable tennis nets, 10 and under tennis balls, throw down lines, cones, and other fun tennis training tools, we convert a gym, black top, or a grassy area into a tennis court in no time. All we ask is each player brings their own junior tennis racket to each class. MTA is proudly sponsored by HEAD/Penn and we offer HEAD junior tennis rackets for sale here.

Do you offer before and after school programs?

We deliver tennis enrichment before the first bell rings or right after the last bell! We can start as early as 7:00 a.m. for tennis before the start of the school day.

After-school is also a very popular option. If class is over at 3:00 p.m., we are hitting tennis balls 3:05 pm! We are happy to design a tennis program that fits your school’s schedule.

What is your minimum and maximum class size?

We offer our program to a minimum of four players. Depending on how many courts are available or the size of the size of the gym we can teach over 20 students at once. Student to instructor ratio is always kept to 8:1.

Parents/ Students
What is included when I sign up for MTA?

Your child will have an amazing time before or after-school learning how to play the lifetime sport of tennis! Students will learn the forehand, backhand, volley, overhead smash, serve, scoring, match play, and sportsmanship. In addition, students will be rewarded with sportsmanship stickers for exceptional character during class.

Each new player will receive an MTA t-shirt on the first day of class and a tennis progress report on the last day to reinforce what they learned. You will also have the opportunity to purchase a brand new HEAD junior tennis racket or can purchase one here.

Do I need to bring my own racket?
MTA requires each child to bring their own tennis racket to class. MTA sells HEAD junior rackets that can be purchased before the start of the session. All rackets that are purchased through MTA will have a name tag with the student’s first name.
How do I get to class?
For a before-school tennis program, the student will be brought to the school and will walk to the gym or tennis court to meet your coach. The bell will ring at the end of tennis and the children will walk to their first classroom. For an after-school program, you will meet your coach in the gym or tennis court after class if over. Some schools have parent volunteers who escort the students to the site and stick around for the class in case a player needs a bathroom or water break. It’s great to have an extra pair of eyes! After tennis, a parent will pick up their player(s) if it is an after-school program. If a player participates in an after-school program that is over at 6:00 pm, they will go back to their designated area for a snack or homework help.
How do I sign up?
If a school has an enrichment program brochure with a registration form, you sign up that way. Some schools have on-line signups and signing up is that easy.  If the school is only offering tennis and MTA provides the registration form, sign up is with the form, and all registrations are picked up by MTA and rosters made before the start of the program.
