Spire Orthopedics becomes the Exclusive Orthopedic Partner of USTA New England


WESTBOROUGH, MA - The U.S. Tennis Association (USTA) of New England is proud to announce a multi-year sponsorship with Spire Orthopedic Partners as the Exclusive Orthopedic Partner of the section. 


The health and wellness benefits of playing tennis are extensive. Medical studies have shown that tennis can add up to 10 years to your life, more than any other physical activity. Together, the organizations will collaborate on content that highlights the vast benefits of the sport from the expertise of doctors within the Spire family of practices.


“We are thrilled to be working with Spire to promote good health and wellbeing in a new and innovative way. Spire truly understands the mental, physical and social benefits of our sport and the role it can play in living a long and healthy life,” said Lindsey Keeler, USTA New England Executive Director and CEO.


Furthermore, tennis participation is up 33% nationwide since 2019, with more than 23 million Americans picking up a racquet last year. New and returning players turned to tennis especially throughout the pandemic to increase fitness, brainpower and social skills, while reducing stress and the risk of heart disease.  


“Spire and its affiliated practices and physicians are thrilled to partner with USTA New England. Spire’s sports medicine and other subspeciality-trained physicians are passionate about injury prevention and making sure athletes remain on the court, not in the stands,” said Spire CEO Chris Fusco. “We look forward to working with USTA New England leadership to further the organization’s mission of growing the game of tennis and expanding access to the sport.”


Spire will work closely with USTA Leagues in New England, giving its more than 13,000 players access to numerous health tools and resources. Spire will also provide gifts for League Captains, who play a pivotal role in ensuring their players see the everyday benefits of tennis.
