USTA Florida Foundation 2023 Fall Grant Cycle Now Open

The USTA Florida Foundation was created to help advocate, support, and grow tennis in the state of Florida. Our mission, “Changing Lives through Tennis” applies to everyone in the state, regardless of ability, skill, and age. The goal is to see as many people as possible get the opportunity to enjoy the game of tennis, and the Foundation continues to accomplish this, year after year.
