Part Time Summer Internship

 The Capital Area Tennis Association (CATA) office, located in Austin, TX, is a not-for-profit volunteer organization devoted to promoting and developing the growth of tennis in the greater Austin area.  CATA is the “qualified” community tennis association (CTA) for the United States Tennis Association-Texas Section and serves the tennis community within a 50 mile footprint surrounding Austin.

Austin is located in the beautiful “Hill Country” of Texas, and is the fastest growing of the 50 largest US cities and the second largest state capital city in the United States.  Well known as the “Live Music Capital of the World,” Austin is also home to numerous lakes, rivers, and waterways including Lady Bird Lake and the famous Barton Springs.  The “clean-air-city” is also known as the “Silicon Hills” for the influx of high-tech corporations and Fortune 500 companies, but the slogan “Keep Austin Weird” helps to remind us to celebrate and protect the unique local vibe.

As an employer, CATA offers a flexible work environment and an inclusive workplace culture that promotes a healthy work-life balance. CATA is an equal opportunity employer and welcomes applicants without regard to age, race, color, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, disability, religion, marital or parental status, protected veteran status, military status, genetic information, sexual orientation, or gender identity and/or expression.
