About us

The Surinamese Tennis Association (STB) was founded in 1948 with the aim of promoting tennis sport in Suriname. Some of the activities executed by the Tennis association are various tennis tournaments throughout the year that are suitable for all ages and playing levels. The Surinamese tennis association also coordinates the participation of Surinamese tennis players in foreign tennis competitions.

The Surinamese tennis association is affiliated with the Surinamese Olympic Committee (SOC), the International Tennis Federation (IFT) and the Confederation of Tennis for Central America and the Caribbean (COTECC). In addition to organizing tournaments and coordinating delegations, the tennis association is also closely involved in improving capacity within the Surinamese tennis world. Partly due to the cooperation of the STB, there is a regular supply of upgrading courses or training courses.

In Suriname tennis lessons are offered at Sportclub Oase, Sport club Dolfijn, Witte Lotus, Sport club Ready, Commewijne and Nicker ie
