Ruston has exploded with tennis players over the past several years and the momentum continues to grow. USTA league membership has tripled since 2016. The Ruston community is embracing this tennis enthusiasm with several different initiatives to give players of all skill levels a venue to practice recreationally and compete as further described below.
