The USTA Alabama organization identified a handful of sites in Alabama that were considered the top tennis providers in the state, and these sites were given the chance to interview with USTA National officials to be considered for special recognition at the national level. Following the onsite interview in Auburn we were informed that USTA was recognizing Yarbrough Tennis Center as a USTA Premier Facility. This designation means the USTA recognizes Yarbrough Tennis Center as achieving a “standard of excellence” for tennis in coaching, instruction, programming, facility operations and maintenance, customer service and community engagement. Shown below is the YTC staff (and a few volunteers) that put in the hard work every day to provide the best possible tennis experience for every player that steps on our courts.
