<h1>USTA National Campus</h1>


As 2016 draws to a close, USTA.com is taking a look back at the top storylines, headlines and highlights from the year in American tennis. 

 

The new Home of American Tennis took its final steps toward becoming reality in 2016.

 

After breaking ground on the USTA National Campus in April 2015, located at Lake Nona in Orlando, Fla., the facility is now set to officially open its doors in January 2017.

 

The state-of-the-art complex is designed to enhance the sport of tennis at every level and to create an unparalleled playing, training and education experience for recreational players, competitive players, coaches and spectators.

 

The National Campus, which is housed on 64 acres of land in the Sports and Performance District in Orlando, offers 100 courts of varying surfaces, including Har-Tru green clay, Plexicushion hard courts and European Terre Davis red clay courts (thanks to more than 450 tons of imported Italian red clay).

 

It also houses both the Player Development and Community Tennis divisions of the USTA, providing greater ability to strengthen grass-roots efforts and focus on developing the next generation of American tennis champions.

 

The facility is also at the front of the pack in terms of technology. It is equipped with PlaySight technologies, the company behind Smart Court and the most cutting-edge video and analytics in tennis, providing the best technology available to help players of all ages and abilities improve their games. By utilizing PlaySight’s analytics and video platform technologies, the National Campus will be the most advanced training facility in the country.

 

The Home of American Tennis will be open to the public 365 days of the year, and visitors will have access to almost every aspect of the campus, with the exception of the Player Development-specific areas.

 

So, if you love tennis, then the USTA National Campus is the place for you. We hope to see you there.
