Ocean Tennis Association

» Main

The Ocean Tennis Association provides fun tennis lessons and tennis leagues for juniors and adults at all levels of play starting at $6/hour.  It is an exciting way for you to play tennis and/or pickleball at your own convenience, at the locations you normally play and against people at your skill level. Open to everyone, our emphasis is on providing beginner, intermediate and advanced players an enjoyable experience by matching up partners of similar skill levels in a friendly environment. It allows you to set your own time to play according to your busy schedules.



BUT THAT'S NOT ALL WE OFFER!!! You don't have to compete in any of our leagues to enjoy the benefits that the OTA membership offers. The OTA wants all tennis & pickleball enthusiasts from our area to participate and benefit in all the new activities we are planning for this year. Make sure you visit our Calendar page to find out about upcoming events.

~a non-profit organization!

(based in Toms River, NJ)

Our organization is dedicated to the USTA's mission "to promote and develop the growth of tennis" throughout our area. We have donated nets for the Bey Lea tennis courts in Toms River, NJ and for the tennis courts at Ocean County Park in Lakewood, NJ.  We supply rollers when needed to the high schools in Toms River, and work closely with the high school coaches on fulfilling any needs their programs may have.  We make annual monetary donations to the Toms River Recreation Department in support of tennis growth.

The Ocean Tennis Association is now accepting registrations for its Summer Tennis League for adults (18 yrs. ) and Juniors. The League runs from Memorial Day through early September.
