Welcome to the USTA Facility Assistance program. Whether you’re just starting out and dreaming of building a state-of-the-art, multi-court tennis facility, you're interested in 36- or 60-foot tennis, or you just want to figure out how to repair the cracked courts at the local park down the street, you’re in the right place – the USTA is here to help!
How can we help make your tennis facility dream come true? The USTA Facility Assistance program can offer you and your community assistance with technical and financial resources. In addition, communities are appointed project consultants from the USTA National staff, who deliver personalized support and service to help take your project from dream to reality.

The USTA Facility Assistance program’s technical team is the best resource we offer communities. With industry leading experience in tennis court/facility construction, our technical team offers everything from concept plans to professional construction document review.
Concept plans are a powerful advocacy tool and help solidify your vision for your project. Our professional construction document review ensures that you and your community are investing in a long-term tennis court solution that will work for you and meets or exceeds industry standards. All of these resources are free of charge to you and your community.
NOTE: The USTA Facility Assistance program’s technical team services hundreds of projects across the country, and their services are rendered on a project-by-project basis. Depending on other projects in the queue, services for your project may not be immediate.
