About Us

What is the Owatonna Tennis Association (OTA)?

The OTA is a non-profit, volunteer based organization that was established to develop and grow the game of tennis in Owatonna. We are a registered Community Tennis Association (CTA) with the United States Tennis Association (USTA).  A CTA is defined as, “any incorporated, geographically defined, not-for-profit, volunteer-based organization that supports or provides programs which promote and develop the growth of tennis.”

The mission of the Owatonna Tennis Association is to encourage, promote, and improve the quality of tennis in the Owatonna area.
