100 Years Strong

Since 1923, our mission to grow the sport has not wavered and remains more relevant than ever. With more than 1.3 million people playing tennis today in our region and another 1M interested, USTA Mid-Atlantic is leading the way to increase access to the sport and chart a course for the next 100 years of tennis. Tennis continues to thrive in our region along with every individual and community that the sport touches.


From our early beginning a century ago, to where we are today increasing access to tennis for ALL, our story is built upon a strong foundation cultivated throughout our 100 year history. Tennis has never been stronger in the Mid-Atlantic than it is today.





USTA Mid-Atlantic will honor the 100th anniversary with a year-long Centennial Celebration that will articulate our vision for the future of tennis, while saluting the impact of the sport, our rich history and those that have paved the way to help our nonprofit organization and tennis get to where it is today. Check back often for more information on the year-long celebration.


For one special night, the Centennial will come to life to honor 100 years of tennis in the region. You won't want to miss being a part of this historic celebration. 


Join us at the Gala and show your support for the next 100 years of tennis in the region. More details about the Centennial Gala will be released soon. For now, SAVE THE DATE: Dec 1, 2023.


The Centennial Gala will help us succeed on the mission to promote tennis and increase access for ALL for the next 100 years. 


Gala sponsorship opportunities are available.
