The GTA or Gambia Tennis Association was officially
founded in 1938 and is a member of the International
Tennis Federation (ITF).
As well as being affiliated to the ITF the GTA is also
affiliated to The Gambia National Olympic and Sports
Committee and the Confédération Africaine de Tennis
The organisation's main goal is to encourage the playing
of tennis in competitive sport tournaments and for leisure
as well as increase the number of tennis courts and
participants around the country.
The day to day running of the association is performed
by an executive committee made up of members and officers
voted in at its Annual General Meeting. The Association
is made up of 4 clubs which are the Stadium Club, The
Gambia Tennis Club, National Coaches Association &
the Basse Tennis Club.
The year 1938 brought in a succession of international
and national tournaments tournaments held on a yearly
basis. To support these contests, training programs
are arranged for players, officials and coaches. To
encourage the program the ITF in 1992 donated tennis
rackets, balls and string.
In March 2012 the GTA began construction of the association's
international standard new tennis courts in Bakau. The
first phase of construction began with 4 courts while
the finished complex consists of 7 courts with associated
facilities such as an office, conference room, Club
House, swimming pool, VIP lounge and other facilities.
