Safe Place to Play Grants
As a non-profit organization dedicated to both the sport and its players, we aim to make tennis the most accessible sport in the region. We are taking action by supporting the creation of safe, accessible places to play and grow the game. Through the Safe Place to Play Grant, we support projects that refurbish and revitalize local tennis courts in the Mid-Atlantic to create inviting places to play and contribute to creating healthy, active communities.
Read about our 2018 Safe Place to Play Grant Recipients and how USTA Mid-Atlantic’s grant program helped them refresh and refurbish tennis courts in their communities.
Grant Applications are now open and being reviewed on a rolling basis. You can access 2019 USTA Mid-Atlantic Grant Guidelines for your reference, guidelines for 2020 are subject to change. Apply here!
New for 2020: All applicants MUST also apply for the USTA National Facility Assistance Grant to be considered. Funding is not dependent on applicant being awarded a grant from National. This change helps to ensure all applicants are technically sound as technical review and assistance is provided by the USTA National Facility Assistance Program.
Stipends do not follow an open application process, but rather are awarded directly to tennis organizers and players who meet specific pre-defined criteria and/or achieve milestones established by USTA Mid-Atlantic. Inquire directly with USTA Mid-Atlantic staff for more information.

The USTA Mid-Atlantic Section partners with a local nonprofit to collect and redistribute gently used equipment to nonprofit organizations all over the Section. The equipment is collected from organizations and individuals throughout the Mid-Atlantic Section and is then refurbished and distributed by Leveling the Playing Field. The grant has helped organizations save on equipment costs across almost every sport.
