What is the Tennis Innovation Committee?

The Tennis Innovation Committee's mission is to collaborate with the other USTA committees and with the greater tennis community to serve as a think tank and laboratory for innovations in scoring, programming and instruction to promote and develop the growth of tennis.

One-Day Formats & Participation Pathways

Nearly every section offers one-day tournaments for great reasons - their ability to: increase play for juniors & adults; provide incremental competitive steps for developing players; offer great value for money; maximize court usage during typical slow times and lastly, they're loads of fun!
The one-days are an essential element in establishing a progressive programming pathway for all ages and levels.  Click here to download formats, compass draw sheets and other resources.
