In the past six years, The United States Tennis Association (USTA) has built more than 35,000 tennis courts across the country --- with the desire of providing any type of player the opportunity to enjoy the sport. Behind this growing number is the USTA Facility Assistance Program, which strives to provide communities access to safe, appealing, and functional tennis environments. Today the program announced that it has honored a $30,000 grant to North Carolina’s Currituck County High School.
This grant should prove invaluable in reconstructing and improving Currituck County’s tennis facility, of which was built in 1985 to serve the high school tennis team and public. With the aid of Currituck County Parks and Recreation Department and Currituck Tennis Association, youth and adult programming will be offered on the newly improved courts.
"This program allows us to assist in the development process of providing usable tennis venues to people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds to play and enjoy the health benefits of our great game," said Kurt Kamperman – Chief Executive of USTA Community Tennis. "We are committed to enhancing and building more tennis facilities in communities across the country."
By investing in the renewal of tennis facilities throughout the United States, the USTA believes that the sport will receive considerable growth, while also providing venues for communities to get together and participate in the lifelong activity that is tennis.
Last year, the USTA expensed over $1.5 million through the Facility Assistance Program.
