OTHER GRANT OPPORTUNITIES

The USTA Southern Advocacy effort is aimed at connecting the passion of USTA members and the larger tennis community with the public policy needs of the communities in which they live. We know that tennis is a sport that can change lives and improve communities, and this website is just one of the tools USTA Southern has developed to help make that happen.

Your USTA Southern tennis service representatives (TSRs) can help communities turn dreams into reality with the help of the USTA Public Facility Assistance program and the USTA Southern Build It Forward grant. Whether you're trying to figure out how to advocate for tennis in your parks, schools or on a college campus, there is help for everyone.

10 and Under Tennis is exploding in USTA Southern! Painting permanent lines at your facility is the next step toward building and supporting a format that will change the face of youth tennis in America. The USTA now requires that all 8 and Under sanctioned tournament play and USTA Junior Team Tennis (JTT) must take place on 36' courts.
