» Diversity


WYOTA and the USTA recognize diversity as essential to achieving our mission, “to promote and develop the growth of tennis”. For us diversity refers to differences of culture, ethnicity, race gender, beliefs, social economic status, sexual orientation, family status, physical ability, appearance and ideas. We acknowledge our goal is ambitious and challenging, but an opportunity we should clearly pursue. We are committed to achieving greater diversity throughout the sport and fostering a tennis environment that is more inclusive.


“We are beginning this journey by directing our efforts first on issues of multiculturalism, which for us translates into race and ethnicity. We are also committed to expanding our reach to other areas specified in our diversity statement.”  -- Alan G. Schwartz, USTA Past President
