About Us

Mitchell County Recreation added a tennis program in November 2002.  They hired a tennis professional and planned a long term investment for bringing the sport to an area of Georgia that is more known for football, basketball, and baseball. 

Since November 2002 Mitchell County has built a 9 court facility with 3 clay courts, 6 hard, and a clubhouse.   Throughout the year over 200 kids & adults participate weekly in different tennis programs being offered. 

Mitchell County Recreation is now joining together with the USTA, Mitchell CTA, Colquitt CTA, Thomasville YMCA, Tift County, Valdosta CTA and Bainbridge CTA to promote Junior Team Tennis.  The purpose of the SWGJTT is to promote and sustain interest in the game of tennis; to provide league play for juniors, and to promote sportsmanship, recreation, and the social interaction associated with team competition.  

Southwest Georgia CTA’s are 502 (c) 3 non-profit organizations that serve Mitchell, Colquitt, Lowndes & Decatur Counties.

Membership and participation is open to all residents of these counties and neighboring counties who want to participate with us.  All participants must have an active USTA membership or a parent of a child with an active membership
