The USTA is happy to provide tools and resources to help park and recreation departments develop and improve tennis programs. As detailed on this page, we have various programs, funding and education opportunities to help you and your clients get the most out of tennis.
From Net Generation – the official youth tennis of the USTA – to facility funding and free webinars, there are tools to help both brand new and well-established programs, and anything in between.
We invite you to explore the following information to find out how the USTA can assist you. Together, we can promote and develop the growth of tennis!
For contact information, please visit the USTA section page, where you can find the main contact phone number for your section or state.
USTA representatives are here to support you and provide you with any information you need to improve your tennis offerings.ADVERTISEMENT
Net Generation is the official youth tennis of the USTA. By providing a well-defined progression and framework for young players to work through, it makes the game more fun and accessible to the next generation. Using larger, lower-bouncing balls and kid-sized racquets, Net Generation makes tennis fun for all.
As a Community Provider, Parks and Recreation departments will benefit from free turnkey curricula and easy-to-use tools that make running local programs for kids of all ages and abilities easy.
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 your local park, the USTA is here to help!
The USTA Facility Assistance program can provide both technical and financial resources to help with your court project.
For more information, including instructions and requirements to apply for funding, please visit our Facility Assistance page.
