Our mission is to improve lives by developing and promoting the growth of tennis

A message from USTA South Carolina

To our USTA SC Tennis Family:

We are proud to report that tennis participation in the US increased by 22 percent in 2020, and nearly 22 million people played the sport last year. Nearly seven million people were new to the game or returned as players during 2020. The growth from 2019 in both new and returning players is staggering.

As we take to the courts in record numbers, please be vigilant. Park in well-lit places and use the buddy system when you can. When you are working with volunteers, providers, or partners — and especially when children are program participants — everyone must be Safe Play Certified, a free certification through our Net Generation initiative.

Tennis continues to be an ideal sport for social distancing, and we are thankful for everyone who has played a role in keeping us healthy — both physically and mentally — during some tough times. In addition, the USTA has invested significantly in the tennis-playing communities across South Carolina through grants and programs. 

We look forward to a strong 2021. Please contact a member of our USTA SC staff if we can be of assistance.
