USTA Northern California Awards
USTA Northern California is proud to honor those who work to promote and develop the game of tennis with the ACES (Awards Celebrating Excellence in Service). ACES are presented each year and we celebrate our players, program participants, volunteers and organizations for their continued commitment and service to tennis.
Among the many awards presented, four categories represent the Diversity & Inclusion awards. They awarded to those driven to create an organization and tennis community that is more inclusive. To that end, we offer awards to pay tribute to those who have championed the cause for diversity and inclusion both on and off the tennis court.
