More than just the governing body of professional tennis, the U.S. Tennis Association Foundation supports a strategic network of empowering programs to over 225,000 under-resourced youth throughout the U.S. via their charitable Foundation and the National Junior Tennis & Learning Program. Studies have shown that youth who play tennis are healthier and less prone to risky behaviors like binge drinking and cigarette smoking. They are also less likely to be overweight or at-risk for obesity. Their efforts are making a difference. To date, the Foundation has awarded more than $28 million in grants and scholarships to more than 350 programs, benefitting thousands of children and adults through tennis, education and health curricula. It’s the kind of difference that translates into more fulfilled and happier individuals and better, more vital communities; USTAFoundation.com.
