2019 USTA Mid-Atlantic Safe Place to Play Grant
The 2019 grant cycle is now open, we will be accepting applications on a rolling basis.
The local tennis courts – whether at the public park, nearby school or within the community – are the gathering places for everyday fun, competition, healthy activity and building bonds. These spaces bring together families, friends, coworkers, and neighbors no matter their background or ability. To ensure people have well maintained, safe and quality courts for play, the USTA Mid-Atlantic offers grants up to $10,000 to support:
- Basic facility improvements
- Resurfacing existing courts
- Conversion of 78' courts to stand-alone 36' courts
- New construction or existing facility construction

Painting blended lines or converting courts into permanent 36’ courts supports the increased use of the 10 and Under Tennis format and progression for youth programming. If your blended lines project is approved through USTA’s National Facility Assistance Program, the USTA Mid-Atlantic Section will contribute 25 percent of the total cost.
