Safe Play

The USTA is committed to making every tennis experience a safe and memorable one.

To ensure a safe environment, the USTA has developed the Safe Play program.


What is Safe Play?

As the national governing body for the sport of tennis in the United States, the USTA is committed to providing a safe and respectful environment for athletes to thrive in. Safe Play is the USTA’s comprehensive athlete safety program consisting of education, screening, reporting tools, and policies for appropriate conduct in tennis. The USTA works with the U.S. Center for SafeSport and the United States Olympic Committee to develop Safe Play policies, procedures, and educational resources to support the USTA Safe Play program.
