COLUMBIA, MD – Columbia Association’s (CA) tennis programming has been named the winner of the United States Tennis Association (USTA) Mid-Atlantic’s Outstanding League Tennis Facility Award for 2019.
The award recognizes a tennis organization that supports and promotes the growth and development of USTA leagues in the Mid-Atlantic region, which includes Maryland; Virginia; Washington, D.C.; and parts of West Virginia.
Approximately 4,000 adult players participate in Columbia Association’s tennis leagues throughout the year. CA also hosts competitive games, tournaments — including several regional tournaments each year — and other special events.
“It’s great to be recognized,” said Maury Bozman, Columbia Association’s Tennis General Manager. “We are proud to provide our community with an avenue for them to be fit, socialize and play tennis — the sport of a lifetime — and for them to continue to grow, develop and compete.”
This award is just the latest recognition for Columbia Association’s tennis programs and facilities:
- In 2018, Long Reach Tennis Club was one of just 24 winners of the USTA Facility Awards, which recognize excellence in the construction and/or renovation of tennis facilities throughout the country.
- Also in 2018, the Mid-Atlantic Club Management Association honored CA’s Tennis Whizz program with its Award of Excellence for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Kids Programming.
- And in 2015, CA was a finalist for the USTA’s organization of the year and winner of the USTA’s innovation award for tennis programming.
Columbia Association offers world-class tennis programs, services and events for members and guests of all ages and abilities year-round at two outdoor tennis clubs and three indoor tennis clubs, totaling 37 tennis courts and several pickleball courts.
