For over 10 years, NRPA has partnered with the United States Tennis Association (USTA) to bring parks and recreation agencies, Tennis in the Parks (TIP). TIP is a strategic initiative designed to help you improve and expand opportunities in communities nationwide, for the public to learn and play the lifelong game of tennis.
Tennis In the Parks (TIP) and all associated program resources are FREE to eligible agencies that are committed to growing and improving tennis programs and infrastructure in the community.
The Big Serve is the USTA's advocacy initiative. The effort is aimed at connecting the passion of USTA members and the larger tennis community with the public policy needs of the communities in which they live. We know that tennis is a sport that can change lives and improve communities, and The Big Serve website is just one of the tools the USTA is developing to help make that happen across the country.
If you have plans to build or renovate tennis courts in your community, NRPA and the USTA can help. Visit http://thebigserve.usta.com to learn how. The hope is that this website will become an important resource for you as you try to grow the game of tennis in your communities.
The USTA Public Facility Funding Grant is the most comprehensive element of the Tennis in the Parks Initiative. For more information on this grant, click here .
