USTA Kansas Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month
For hundreds of years, Hispanic-Americans have made a positive and lasting impact on the fabric of American society. Their rich history, culture, and achievements are awe-inspiring, and we as a nation have so much to thank our Hispanic communities for. National Hispanic Heritage Month, which runs September 15-October 15, was created to honor these many contributions of Hispanic-Americans while also celebrating those in our communities who serve as inspirations to others across the country.
Each year, the National Archives celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month by sharing the stories of famous Hispanic-Americans under an annual theme. The theme for 2022 is “Unidos: Inclusivity for a Stronger Nation,” and this resonates with us here at USTA Kansas. We strongly believe in the power of inclusivity, and a major goal of ours is to ensure everyone who wants to play tennis has an opportunity to do so.
USTA Kansas is home to a sizable Hispanic population, with Wichita among the largest. Wichita is also home to a wide variety of community tennis programs, with many Hispanic-American children and adults actively participating in them. We’re also home to so many wonderful Hispanic-American individuals who lead, influence, and educate members of our communities on the game of tennis and its many benefits.
We hope you’ll join us in celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month and honoring Hispanic-Americans in our communities and across the nation.
