“We are thrilled to recognize organizations across the country that are committed to promoting and growing wheelchair tennis through local programming,” said Dan James, USTA National Manager, Wheelchair Tennis, “These grants are just a part of the continued effort in implementing important programs that reach out to the wheelchair community through tennis.
