New Haven Youth Tennis wins $10,000 grant

New Haven Youth Tennis has won a $10,000 grant from the U.S. Tennis Association, one of 15 organizations nationwide to receive an award.

The one-time grants, ranging from $2,500 to $10,000, are given to support community-based organizations that promote participation in the sport and encourage diversity in their programs. Each program can receive a grant one time.

“By adopting the USTA’s mission to grow the game of tennis, New Haven Youth Tennis is not only helping to grow the game using pathways such as 10 and Under Tennis and Junior Team Tennis, it is ensuring the growth of the New Haven community,” said Kurt Kamperman, USTA chief executive for community tennis, in a press release.

“We are proud to honor organizations that show such spirit and passion for tennis and proud to be able to assist them in their efforts.”

The USTA is the national governing body for tennis in the United States and promotes the sport from local communities to the professional level. It owns and operates the U.S. Open, one of four grand-slam tennis events in the world.
