2020 Annual Meeting & Conference Update

March 19, 2020

The USTA and the entire global community are grappling with a truly unprecedented situation as we face and react to the COVID-19 virus pandemic. During this time, we need to focus on our families, our businesses and our communities. Though we all truly love the sport of tennis and gain so much perspective from attending the USTA Annual Meeting and Conference, given the current circumstances, we want our attendees to be able to focus completely on the many more significant challenges we are all facing. 


We, therefore, have reluctantly canceled all meetings relating to the Annual Meeting and Conference with the exception of the actual Governance Committee Meeting and the Annual Meeting of the Voting Members, which will be conducted primarily through the use of proxies. The results of the votes on bylaw changes and regulations changes will be communicated via email following these meetings.


By taking this route, we can accomplish what must be accomplished, without unnecessarily distracting everyone for what truly needs to be focused on:  ourselves, our families and our communities. 


Obviously, we announce this change with heavy hearts, but know this is the right course of action. We are all looking forward to the time, which we hope is soon to come, when we are all back on the courts together again.
