United States Tennis Association
Partner of the ITA
The United States Tennis Association's mission as the sport’s national governing body is to promote and develop the growth of tennis. That is no more evident than in college tennis, where the organization supports thousands of juniors in their aspirational goal to continue their pathway in the game.
The USTA and its 17 sections across the country work closely with the ITA to assist players, parents and coaches with recruiting education at all levels. Among its major roles, the USTA organizes junior tournaments and recruiting events while also producing digital resources, including an informational college tennis homepage.
In addition to supporting varsity tennis, the USTA provides playing opportunities at the club level with Tennis On Campus. In the classroom, the organization accredits Professional Tennis Management (PTM) degree programs at schools throughout the country, designed to help students find a career in the sport.
Thanks to the USTA National Campus, which opened in 2017 in Orlando, Fla., the USTA not only welcomes important junior events, but also hosts approximately 400 college dual matches a year, all streamed live utilizing PlaySight technology. From Spring Break Tennis to the NCAA Championships, the Campus has become one of the premier destinations for college players. And with a Tennis Channel studio on site, college tennis is growing in front of a national audience, highlighted by the thousands of fans who attend the annual College MatchDay series and tune in all over the country.
College coaches, meanwhile, can take advantage of all of the resources at the USTA's fingertips. The organization can provide tools for schools to host Net Generation clinics, learn from USTA Player Development and get involved with a robust facilities program to grow the game within communities.
With history that dates back to 1881, the USTA has been dedicated to growing the game for more than a century. Whether it's hosting the US Open or helping student-athletes stay in the sport they love, the USTA looks forward to developing even more college standouts, on and off the court.
