USTA Plans to Issue $3M in “Growing the Game” Grants to Local Communities


Grants to be Targeted at Entry-level Programs to Engage and Retain New or Returning Players


May 5, 2021:  With an additional $3 million in "Growing the Game" grants targeted for organizations that attract and engage new and returning tennis players from May to November, the USTA is moving forward with the next phase of its funding to continue rebuilding the sport of tennis. 


To qualify for the “Growing the Game” grants, organizations will be encouraged to develop entry-level programs to engage and retain new or returning players coming to the game, regardless of age. Special emphasis will be placed on those supporting Parks & Rec programs across the country. Grants will be awarded on a sliding scale, depending on the number of new and returning players who participate in entry-level programming.


Applications for the grants will be available on the Tennis Industry United website beginning in mid-May.
