USTA commits $3 million to refurbish tennis courts across America
In recognition of Coco Gauff’s US Open women's singles title, the USTA is committing to the refurbishment of tennis courts across the country as part of the newly-created US Open Legacy Initiative.
In total, the USTA is allocating $3 million to reinvigorate courts at parks, schools, and other public facilities across America in honor of Coco Gauff. This $3 million matches the prize money for the US Open women's singles champion.
This effort will be delivered through the USTA’s Tennis Venue Services program which aims to preserve, restore and construct tennis facilities across the country with projects ranging from court resurfacing and lighting upgrades to full-scale construction projects.
Over the last five years, the grant program has awarded over $5 million* to projects impacting the tennis infrastructure across the country.
In future years, in the case of an American US Open men’s or women’s singles champion, the USTA will make a similar commitment to advancing the USTA mission of promoting and developing the growth of tennis across the country, which could range from equipment donations to coaching grants and beyond.
