USTA Wheelchair Tennis Grassroots Grant
Every year, USTA Wheelchair Tennis provides grant assistance to organizations that promote and develop the growth of the game. The first USTA Wheelchair Tennis Grassroots Grants were awarded in 2008 and since then, the USTA has given more than $650,000 to wheelchair tennis programs across the country. Grant amounts are based on each program's existing budget, as well as the future programming needs of the organization.
We are placing special emphasis on programs that plan to attract new junior players to the sport. Grants should assist in providing the following elements:
Events (i.e., run/rolls, tournaments, camps)
Please email Joanne Wallen, Sr. Director, USTA National Campus, with any questions or concerns.
Collegiate Community Hub Grant
Together with the ITA, the USTA is pleased to offer a one-time grant up to $10,000 awarded to your athletic department if you actively operate your tennis facility as a new “Collegiate Community Hub”.
The USTA is pleased to offer a number of services through the Tennis Venue Services team. Complimentary business, advocacy, and technical assistance are available to facilities to help grow the game in their communities. In addition, the USTA offers a competitive grant to public facilities that can further support their facility improvements.
