The History of RTU

RTU (Rockwall Tennis Unlimited) began as the brainchild of its founder, J.R. (Jamshid) Rahmanzadeh.

After speaking with friends in the USTA, J.R. found out about USTA’s Community Tennis Associations (CTA) this seemed a perfect place to start. So on a cold night in the Fall of 2004, Rockwall Tennis Unlimited had it’s first evening of tennis. A small group of people who just loved to play tennis came to the courts at Utley. So then it was decided that we would play every Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Only true tennis enthusiasts joined us because it was cold on the courts. Little by little more people heard of RTU and came to play. It wasn’t long before we had a strong team of Mixed Doubles. As time past, RTU grew due to the enthusiastic response of the community. By 2005 RTU kept growing in membership and staff. We now had one pro.

In 2006 we moved our program to the Rockwall Heath High School courts. As of 2007 we have, two Mixed Doubles Team (the original one and a new one), two USTA teams, two Metro teams, and four TCD teams. Tennis seems to be a very addictive game. We were up to two pros.

As of 2007, RTU has reached the status of an independent, non-profit corporation with tax exemption. RTU is approved by the United States Tennis Association (USTA) as a Community Tennis Association (CTA). RTU is an umbrella CTA, which delivers a full menu of programs and services to the entire community regardless of age, gender, cultural or socioeconomic background or skill levels. RTU was awarded Community Tennis Association of the year in 2007 by the Texas Section of USTA. This is largely due to our outstanding participation and support of our tennis players.

 

Rockwall County. We now have eight teams of USTA, METRO, TCD. Our instructional staff is growing.

So come join us on the courts to learn the game, to practice skills, to play with your family and friends, or to play on a team. Come help grow the game of tennis.
