Welcome to the Fall River Community Tennis Association
The Fall River Community Tennis Association (FRCTA) was started by local tennis enthusiasts with a mission to promote tennis participation in the Fall River area.
The FRCTA is funded through a start-up grant from the United States Tennis Association (USTA). Members of FRCTA will advocate for the renovation of the city's tennis courts, tennis programming in schools, and increased adult participation.
FRCTA is sponsoring USTA Jr. Team Tennis, Quickstart Tennis for Children, The Strickman Cup Doubles Tournament, a Singles & DoubleLeague, and the Fall River Open Tennis Tournament.
For information regarding our Tennis & Education Program please find the updated Brochure on the Handouts page.
