Louisiana Tennis Association is proud to announce our first-ever Diversity and
Inclusion Committee, who had their first meeting on Saturday, December 17th, at
the City Park / Pepsi Tennis Center in New Orleans.
James W. Baker
III has been named as the Committee's chairperson.
The Diversity and Inclusion Committee is dedicated to using tennis as a tool
for human growth and development, as well as raising consciousness and
awareness, among all people, of tennis in Louisiana.
The Committee is specifically focused on introducing the sport, and supporting
the continued participation of the individuals, families, and communities who
belong to social and cultural groups that have been traditionally
under-represented in tennis.
Committee will be meeting again in February to discuss strategic partnerships,
and community engagement initiatives.
