Current tour professionals from the USTA Missouri Valley include Madison Keys (Rock Island, Ill.) and Jack Sock (Lincoln, Neb.). Keys and Sock still make regular trips back to the section to participate in community-level events.
We are thrilled to start safely welcoming our players back to USTA programming beginning June 1. Availability of USTA programming will happen on a district by district basis, based on local situations and in conjunction with government offices and local decision-makers. We ask that as you return to tennis, please be respectful of the facility guidelines for safe play.
