LONG TERM PLANS:
With the tax deductible donations, sponsorships and funding from our corporate friends and generous families, the ATA South aims to develop the ATA South headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia. The ATA South headquarters will have 4 (or more) tennis courts, a state of the art community center with meeting rooms, player lounge, gym and area to curate the first black history tennis museum in the city of Atlanta.
The ATA South headquarters will be open to the public and we plan to offer after school programming, black history tennis museum, coaching, training opportunities as well as educational programming.
