USTA Public Facility Assistance Program:
The USTA Facility Assistance program has three areas of assistance for you and your community: advocacy, technical, and financial. Whether you're attempting to build a new tennis facility or renovate and upgrade an existing one, the USTA can provide the tools you need to make it happen! Our expert staff can assist you throughout your project with resources including:
- Personalized concept plans
- 36' and 60' (QuickStart play format) court recommendations
- Document and bid review
- Access to USTA partners within the industry
- Programming assistance for maximum court utilization
- Partial funding on approved projects through a competitive grant process
Visit www.usta.com/Facilities to take advantage of all the great resources and to fill out the TENNIS FACILITY INQUIRY FORM.
Tennis Facility Inquiry Forms will be accepted on an on-going basis. TIP communities that complete the on-line inquiry will be interviewed by a USTA representative within 4-6 weeks for clarification and scope of project.
Please note that TIP communities must be invited to apply for Public Facility Funding, and the grant application will only be made available to communities that complete the Tennis Facility Inquiry Form, complete an interview with the USTA and are invited to apply.
