Stories of Inspiration, USTA Returns the Serve

Pearl Harbor Military Family Fun Festival 6-8-2011

The USTA is committed to helping military families and service members, and is honored to be serving the US Military. Our military outreach effort will continue to grow as our volunteers continue to reach out to military communities in their local area. Please share your story by visiting The Big Serve. We may post your "Story of Inspiration" on the USTA's advocacy website for others to read and learn from.

What can my community do?


Times of war and extended military deployments can dramatically disrupt lives and stability of military personnel and their families.  This Guide contains tips to Community Tennis Associations for providing much needed community-level recreation at this historic time of stress and need.



Learn more about how your tennis community can get involved with Adopt-A-Unit to support service members deployed in Iraq or Afghanistan by sending care packages. USTA Serves will in turn, send portable tennis equipment to these units.

Start a Wounded Warrior Program


Are you interested in starting a Wounded Warrior tennis therapy training or growing an existing program in your community?  The USTA can connect you with a Veterans Hospital or Warrior Transition Unit in your area so you can reach out with wheelchair and adaptive tennis.  View our best practices and helpful information, and contact for more information.
