This is the USTA Adopt-a-Court Program…

The USTA Adopt-a-court program was initiated by the Technical Committee in 1999 to financially assist public tennis facilities in repairing and upgrading existing tennis courts.  To date, 84 grants have been awarded and all 17 USTA sections participate in the Program.

Because of the tremendous success of the Adopt-a court program, the USTA has recognized the continued need to support this type of endeavor and has increased its 2003 funding of the program to $250,000.  In 2002, DecoTurf Systems signed an agreement with the USTA to support the Adopt-a-Court program and is now “the official court surface sponsor.”

Grants shall be used for repair and/or upgrading existing tennis courts, court equipment and amenities, and shall include new construction limited to improvement or relocation of existing courts.

Applicants must meet all criteria and submit a completed Adopt-a-Court application.  Incomplete or revised applications will not be accepted.

Thank you for your interest in the USTA Adopt-a-Court Program.  The program is designed to provide a safe, properly constructed and functional facility including court amenities (i.e. shade areas, water fountains, backboards, ball machines, lighting, etc.)

All applications must comply with the criteria set forth.  Applications are not necessarily approved by the Committee, or may not be approved for the amount requested.
