The proximity between Swiss Tennis and its members is ensured by so-called regional associations (RV). There are currently 19 regional associations. They form the umbrella organization for all tennis activities in the region, hold cantonal and regional championships, form the link between the grassroots and Swiss Tennis and represent the interests of the clubs and centers affiliated to them vis-à-vis Swiss Tennis. They also support the endeavors of Swiss Tennis within their area, especially in the two main areas of “promoting tennis in general” and “regional youth development”.

The association was founded on June 28, 1896 in Bern by eight clubs as the Swiss Lawn Tennis Association . The aim was to regulate the tournament scene and play a Swiss championship.

Swiss Tennis is a member of Swiss Olympic , Tennis Europe and the International Tennis Federation (ITF). The association is also responsible for the Swiss Davis Cup and Fed Cup teams .
