The USTA and its nationwide network provide millions of dollars in financial and material grants every year. Whether it's to refurbish or construct tennis courts, attend a training workshop, start a league, hire a teaching pro, or purchase equipment, the USTA offers grants to help grow the game. Funding is available at the national, sectional and state levels.
USTA Southern Program Grant: The application for USTA Southern Program Grants is now available. To be considered for the first round of funding, applications must be submitted to the USTA Kentucky office by January 31, 2014. There will be a second application period later in the year. Those applications must be submitted to the USTA Kentucky office by May 30, 2014. The application can be found by clicking here.
USTA Southern QuickStart Line Grant: USTA Southern has a new grant available for facilities interested in painting QuickStart lines on existing courts! Painting permanent QuickStart lines at your facility is the next step in creating permanency for the format that will change the face of youth tennis. USTA Southern will partner with your community to help accomplish this goal with the USTA Southern QuickStart Line Grant.
This grant will cover 75% of the cost to install these lines in the Southern Section.
All grants will be available on a first come, first serve basis as long as funds are available. If you have any questions, please contact Andrew Walker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The application can be found here.
