USTA partners with reforestation non-profit One Tree Planted

April 22, 2021


Following 12 successful years of the US Open's Green Initiatives program in New York, the USTA's latest sustainability project will see 1,500 trees planted on the West Coast in California. Through a partnership with reforestation non-profit One Tree Planted, one tree will be planted in honor of each of the nearly 1,500 participants in the 2021 NTRP National Championships that concluded last week.

 

Wit the help of a USTA donation, the trees will be planted in California to help replenish U.S. National Forests that have been impacted by recent forest fires. The location was picked in part because San Diego was one of the three locations that hosted the NTRP National Championships over the course of two weeks, with the others being Orlando, Fla., and Surprise, Ariz.

The NTRP National Championships were launched in 2018, leveraging the NTRP rating system as a way to create level-based competition in the 18 & over and 50 & over age groups. The National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) is the official system for determining the levels of competition for the USTA League Tennis Program. This year was the third edition of the NTRP National Championships, which is one of the largest adult events staged by the USTA, after last year’s championships were postponed due to COVID- 19.
