Delta Air Lines and USTA Southern Section Renew Partnership

February 4, 2004 03:01 PM

The USTA Southern Section announced today that it has extended its existing agreement with Delta Air Lines. Under the agreement, which runs through 2005, Delta remains as the “official airline of the USTA Southern Section.”

The agreement between the USTA Southern Section and Delta Air Lines creates a discount opportunity for players, family members, and officials flying to Bullfrog USTA Southern Section Junior Designated events. Additional travel savings will also be offered in the future and can be found online at

“We are thrilled that our relationship with Delta Airlines has been extended through 2005,” said Bill Oakes, Director of Marketing for the USTA Southern Section. “The airfare discounts will be a huge benefit to our junior players and their families over the next two years and we are excited about how this partnership will assist our High Performance programs.”

"Delta is proud to continue our association with the USTA Southern Section, " said Charles Lawson, Manager, Industry Marketing for Delta. "We hope that our special pricing offer will allow more people to attend the Bullfrog USTA Southern Section Junior Designated events."

As the world's second largest airline in terms of passengers carried and the leading U.S. carrier across the Atlantic, Delta offers 7,318 flights each day to 487 destinations in 82 countries on Delta, Song, Delta Shuttle, Delta Connection and Delta's worldwide partners. Delta was the first U.S. airline to operate regional jets and currently utilizes the largest RJ fleet.

Founded in 1881, the United States Tennis Association (USTA) is the national governing body for the sport of tennis in this country. In addition to owning the US Open and selecting members of the Davis Cup, Fed Cup, Olympic and Paralympic teams, the USTA administers a variety of programs nationwide for players of all ages and ability levels. A not-for-profit organization, the association is divided into 17 sections, of which the USTA Southern Section is the largest. The 168,000 USTA members living in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee make up the USTA Southern Section, and account for approximately 25% of the total USTA membership. A professional staff housed in Norcross, GA carries out the USTA Southern Section’s daily operations, but policy is formed and much of the organization’s work is executed via a Board and committee structure of over 200 volunteers.
