Happy Holidays from USTA Iowa

November 18, 2020

USTA Iowa wishes everyone to stay healthy and safe this holiday season. 2020 has been a challenging year for all of us, but despite this, we are happy to see the positive news of tennis being a safe sport to play in the midst of a pandemic. Even though some seasons were shortened and some tournaments were cancelled, the growth of tennis, especially at the local level, is something we are very excited to see.


USTA Iowa wants to thank everyone for doing their part to keep tennis safe for players, parents, coaches and organizers (sanitizing, social distancing and wearing masks in designated areas).


We are looking forward to new beginnings in 2021. We are hopeful that we can safely resume more competition throughout the USTA Missouri Valley, but are also hopeful that we can maintain our local efforts in our neighborhood parks and schools. It has been so refreshing to see peoples’ love of tennis at all ages shine through in these troubling times. 


Time and again, tennis ranks #1 among safe sports and we are lucky that it is OUR sport!  We want to encourage our entire tennis community to remain upbeat, stay safe and keep active - get on a court!


Everyone here at USTA Iowa is wishing all of our tennis community a happy, safe, and tennis filled holiday season.


Best Wishes,


USTA Iowa District Board, Staff, and Volunteers
