Dallas Tennis Association | DTA
Founded as the Dallas Tennis Patrons Association in the 1930’s, the organization’s name was changed to the Dallas Tennis Association shortly after. In 2023, the Board of Directors made the decision to modernize the brand and embrace what the organization has become to the community WE SERVE.
We are DALLAS TENNIS.
