The Brandon Tennis Association is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization in South Dakota that has grown from a group of interested parents and players in the summer of 2005 to the vibrant, player-driven organization it is today. Its mission is to grow tennis in the community, providing opportunities for people of all ages to learn, play and compete.
Working in cooperation with the Brandon city council and school district to help make its vision a reality, the Brandon Tennis Association spearheaded an effort to develop an eight-court tennis complex complete with four new tennis courts, four refurbished courts and an 800-square-foot welcome center.
