TGA Premier Youth Tennis (TGA), one of the leading initiatives to grow the sport of tennis in partnership with the United States Tennis Association (USTA), has awarded a new tennis franchise in New Jersey to Nick Meltzer, a former financial services and investment executive.

Meltzer’s franchise, located in Union County, joins 21 other existing tennis franchises in 10 different states awarded by TGA in just over 18-months of franchising. This new model, which introduces the sport of tennis to youth in schools through supporting the USTA’s “10 and Under Tennis” initiative, is already serving students and families in more than 1,000 schools throughout the United States.

A graduate of New York University with an MBA in finance, Meltzer is an accomplished investment operations executive with experience in financial services, financial management and is highly skilled in collaborating with organizations to achieve business and financial objectives. He was looking for a more balanced work life and career that could incorporate sports and youth when he discovered TGA.

TGA, which is one of the nation’s most successful and fastest growing youth sports companies, developed and implements a new and innovative school-based activation model and tennis curriculum in partnership with the USTA. The curriculum is designed to enrich young people’s lives through physical fitness, health and nutrition, education and character building.

TGA Premier Youth Tennis of Union County is expected to involve thousands of youth annually by introducing the sport of tennis to children at elementary and middle schools, child care centers and community based organizations through a multi-level instruction program. TGA will then transition the students to local tennis facilities and USTA youth programs.
