The Durham-Orange Community Tennis Association (DOCTA) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization established in 1998 and supported by volunteers to promote and encourage tennis. The mission of DOCTA is to promote and encourage diverse and inclusive tennis participation, programming, and leadership development in Durham and Orange Counties. This is done by conducting clinics, workshops, lessons, seminars, tournaments, carnivals, and other events and activities relating to the promotion and development of tennis. The goal is to help children ages 4-18 develop and learn the skill of tennis and to provide opportunities for them to move from junior to college or professional participation. Adults of all ages are given opportunities to learn, improve their skills, and compete in leagues and other events.
