The United States Tennis Association (USTA), the national governing body for the sport of tennis in the United States, is committed to helping America’s kids increase their level of physical fitness.
Since 2012, USTA has worked to build tennis courts and train coaches to increase the number of children with options for physical activity. In 2012, USTA succeeded in its commitment by pledging to build 3,200 tennis courts and train 12,000 coaches, but built more than 4,600 and trained more than 13,800 coaches. Overall, USTA has built 9,737 courts and trained 25,228 as of 2012. Through its National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL) network, USTA has already reached 692,720 American youth!
In 2017, USTA chose to team up with us for another commitment to support healthy kids and communities. For the next three years, the organization will work to provide opportunities for at least 500,000 children to get active on the tennis court through their NET Generation initiative, a new approach to making tennis fun and more accessible to all. Through NET Generation, our partner will recruit tennis instructors, coaches, and school providers to register and join the USTA branded platform to gain access to the NET Generation resources and curriculum.
