“The United States Tennis Association (USTA) exceeded its 3 year commitment to Partnership For A Healthier America (PHA) by serving more than 650,000 youth through tennis and education programming and building more than 5,000 kid-sized tennis courts across 46 states, Washington, DC and Puerto Rico. In addition the USTA donated tennis equipment to schools and youth facilities totaling more than $550,000 and trained more than 11,000 new youth tennis coaches.
"The USTA’s partnership with PHA has been instrumental to helping position the sport as one that is open to all. The USTA was delighted to work with PHA and former First Lady Michelle Obama to reinforce that tennis is a great sport to stay active no matter your age or ability level and to teach valuable life lessons such as hard work, team work and discipline. The USTA remains focused on exposing all kids to tennis to help them not only become active tennis players but healthy and productive citizens.”
