Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion is a strategic priority for the USTA Southern and one of our core values. 

Diversity allows us to touch "all of America" and inclusion allows "all of America" to touch us. Our responsibility in USTA Southern obligates us to identify and lead in removing barriers to allow us to be inclusive so that tennis reflects all of America.


Diversity is the collective mixture of our human and organizational assets characterized by our similarities and differences. 

Inclusion is leveraging the power of diversity in a respectful environment that encourages all to participate and contribute to future the USTA Southern mission.
