The USTA North Carolina Board of Directors passed a historic plan in January of 2011 to impact the growth of Tennis in our state. Due to the ever expanding tennis public in NC, the Board created a special reserve account for 2011 to impact refurbishing public tennis facilities in NC. The Board voted in January of 2013 to continue this plan. This account, along with matching USTA funds, will allow a total investment of up to $200,000 in assistance throughout our state. The fund is not for new facilities, but for public facilities to resurface and/or convert existing courts that are in disrepair and to help support the growth of 10 and Under tennis in North Carolina. This endeavor is to compliment the already popular USTA National Facility Assistance Program and may allow facilities to receive grant funding of up to 75% of the project cost. We are excited to share this investment throughout our state and "Raise the Net" in your local community.
In order to submit an application for consideration for this money here are the following steps:
