Barbados Tennis Association (the Association) is the governing body of tennis in the island and oversees the development of all aspects of the game. The Association  is determined to welcome more people into the sport, to keep their interest alive and to help all players maximize their full potential.

Being a non-profit organization and the Council or Executive consisting of volunteers, the Association is dependant on the Government of Barbados, the Barbados Olympic Association, the International Tennis Federation and the private sector for financial assistance, in addition to its members to assist with projects and programmes.

The “Home of Tennis” – the National Tennis Centre – has great potential in the development of the sport and is increasingly becoming recognized. However, the Association is aware that a massive financial investment must be made to raise the standard of the game and to enable the Association to fulfill its mandate.
