"Mission Statement and Values"
The MISSION of the USTA is simple and clear:
“To promote and develop the growth of tennis”
This Mission Statement serves as the guiding principle for all activities of the United States Tennis Association as well as the inspiration and motivation for all who volunteer their effort and expertise.
The USTA has identified five CORE VALUES which constitute the fundamental beliefs of the organization:
Integrity: The USTA is committed to the highest standards of integrity, honesty and ethics.
Inclusiveness: The USTA actively seeks all people who play, watch, support, and/or enjoy the game of tennis into its events, programs, membership, leadership, and activities on a non-discriminatory basis.
Excellence: The USTA continually strives for excellence and is dedicated to providing outstanding service and value.
Commitment & Teamwork: The USTA is committed to its mission and believes that mission can best be achieved through the efforts of volunteers, staff and strategic partners working as a team.
Accountability: USTA staff and volunteers accept responsibility for how their actions support the USTA Mission.
Both the Mission Statement and Core Values are contained in the USTA STRATEGIC PLAN, a document designed to provide continuity of direction and purpose over an extended period of time.
