Selection criteria includes:

  • Clear use of grant funds in an itemized budget and a plan for program sustainability
  • Program growth and expansion, which can include the number of athletes and/or play opportunities
  • Impact stories and/or testimonials, if available


The USTA's Adaptive Tennis Grant is offered to assist in the promotion, implementation and growth of adaptive tennis programs at the community level. Adaptive grant funds are not intended for wheelchair tennis programs or NJTL chapters. Grants for wheelchair tennis programs are available through the USTA Wheelchair Committee and grants for NJTL chapters are available through the USTA Foundation.

A limited number of grants will be available. Checks to approved adaptive tennis programs will be mailed in December and the grant funds must be used before Oct. 1, 2022. A complete accountability report on the use and results of the grant funds will be required.


The deadline to apply is 12:00 midnight EST on Nov. 15, 2021. For more information and to apply online, click here, and for more information about adaptive tennis at the USTA, click here
