LI Region Offers Grants to Tennis Programs

July 24, 2015 10:36 AM

One of the many benefits of USTA organizational membership is access to grants and other funding for programs that promote and develop tennis participation. Long Island Regional grants are allocated in the range of $300 to $1,000, with special consideration given to those seeking to expand programming to: Special and Minority Populations, Parks & Recreation, Community Tennis Associations, Schools/After School, Wheelchair and Senior Tennis.

Grant money is available to member organizations who will support and participate in the Region’s mission to promote and develop the growth of tennis on Long Island. 

“The Long Island Region is focused on fostering participation in tennis and USTA programs with all of our member organizations,” says Herbert Harris, grants coordinator Long Island Regional board, a volunteer organization. “Grant proposals should emphasize the following: demonstrate interest in working more closely with the Long Island Regional Board, the Regional Program Coordinator and the LI Tennis Service Representative with tennis program development; show specific examples of programs that attract new players and/or retain existing players through clinics, leagues, special events and tournaments, and willingness to participate in USTA League Tennis and USTA Junior Team Tennis,” Harris says.
