United States Tennis Association Pro Circuit

Deadline Date:

Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants ranging from $500 to $3,000 to USA tennis organizations to support tournament events aimed at any age group or population segment, including, but not limited to, juniors, adults, seniors, wheelchair, and schools. Applicants are encouraged discuss the tournament with their regional contact prior to applying.

The tournament should result in developing community interest and support, and increase tennis participation by generating interest.

Many tournaments conduct special activities while the tournament is in progress to create awareness of their event within their community, gain local support by involving community organizations, and to provide a fun experience for people in the community. Community tennis events at tournaments are also the ideal opportunity to showcase tennis and for people to give tennis a try.

Acceptable expenditures include any of the following:
-Publicity: To get participants to the event.
-Flyers: So participants know where to sign up in local tennis programs.
-Prizes: For the on-court activities. We would like to see some sort of matching fund arrangement.
-Stipend for event organizer.
