Missouri Valley / Heart Of America

It’s Time to Make Your Nominations for the 2022 USTA Heart of America Awards!

Sydney Hamilton | July 08, 2022

Trophies are always nice when you win a league or tournament. However, we at USTA Heart of America believe in also awarding those who win off the court, too–those in our district who go above and beyond to be good sports, to promote the game of tennis in our communities, and to honor outstanding facilities that help make our leagues, tournaments, and programs successful.


While we certainly notice and appreciate the individuals and facilities that help make our district awesome, the USTA Heart of America Awards aren’t up to us–they’re up to you to decide! 


However, time is running out to make your nominations!


If you’d like to nominate a player, official, or other member of our community, or if you’d like to give props to your favorite tennis club, we invite you to review the awards criteria found here and submit this nomination form to Jamie Galloway by September 1, 2022. Don’t miss your chance to show some love to those who make a positive impact on our tennis community!


If you have any questions regarding the award criteria or how to submit your nomination form, please contact Jamie Galloway by emailing awardshoa@gmail.com


Thank you to everyone for making 2022 a memorable year in USTA Heart of America history! We couldn’t do what we do without your support.
