There are five other regions in the SW Section, including Northern New Mexico, Phoenix, Southern Arizona, Greater El Paso, TX, and Southern New Mexico. Our area of responsibility stretches across all of Northern Arizona, to include Apache, Coconino, Mohave, Navajo and Yavapai counties.

The goal of the NAZ Region is to provide a pathway for all ages to play tennis, from young juniors, teenagers, young adults, to senior adults. The programming includes 1) providing the basics of tennis and ball sports; and (2) creating both recreational and competitive tennis for all ages and levels of NAZ tennis players.
Within our Region, are several areas that have Community Tennis Associations which help the Region provide tennis opportunities in their respective areas. These tennis opportunities include USTA and non-USTA programming. The CTAs are Flagstaff Tennis Association, Kingman Tennis Association and Prescott Area Tennis Association.
Our mission is to promote and develop the growth of tennis throughout the Northern Arizona region. We proudly serve our players and fans by providing valuable information and services focused on our mission.
