The USTA Southern Advocacy effort is aimed at connecting the passion of USTA members and the larger tennis community with the public policy needs of the communities in which they live. We know that tennis is a sport that can change lives and improve communities, and this website is just one of the tools USTA Southern has developed to help make that happen.
Keep in mind that these funds are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and there is a limited amount of dollars in this budget line item. Also, you will be required to submit an accountability report later this year showing how the funds were spent and the actual results achieved.
Please check this site regularly as grants are posted as they are available.
Whether you’re just starting out and dreaming of building a state-of-the-art, multi-court tennis facility, you're interested in 36' or 60' tennis, or you just want to figure out how to repair the cracked courts at the local park down the street, you’re in the right place – the USTA is here to help!
Whether you are fundraising, volunteering, or starting a brand new club, the USTA has you covered. We've got grants, customizable marketing materials, and everything else you need to run your team.
The submission of the Facility Assistance Form will initiate the USTA assistance process for all seeking technical services from the USTA. Technical assistance can be in the form of preparation of conceptual plans, technical reviews of facility design documents, advocacy consultation or addressing specific planning and design issues related to a new or existing tennis center.

The Mills Scholarship will provide $1,000 to help a worthy student offset the expenses of his or her first year of school. The awards will continue for three additional years provided the recipient remains a student in good standing, giving each scholarship a total value of $4,000. To qualify for a scholarship, students must demonstrate financial need and must have participated in tennis for at least two of their high school years, either on a school team or through tournaments, National Junior Tennis & Learning (NJTL), Junior Team Tennis or other USTA programs. The primary consideration in awarding the scholarships will be academic performance and potential, but community service and sportsmanship will also be considered.
