Covering the Action
Since its inception in 2004, the US Open Series has expanded television viewing opportunities. In 2019, nearly 300 hours of live, national television coverage aired across ESPN2 and Tennis Channel, with every day of the US Open Series—34 days of coverage—airing for the fourth consecutive year.
Giving Back to the Game
In 2019, for the seventh year, the US Open Series partnered with the USTA Foundation, the national charitable arm of the United States Tennis Association (USTA). The USTA Foundation brings together the powerful combination of tennis and education to change the lives of under-resourced youth around the United States, with a primary focus on the National Junior Tennis & Learning (NJTL) network, which this year celebrated its 50th anniversary since being founded by Arthur Ashe, Sheridan Snyder and Charlie Pasarell. A network of nearly 300 local programs that provides academic support and access to tennis of a free or low-cost basis, NJTL reaches approximately 180,000 under-resourced youth annually. In each US Open Series market in the U.S., the USTA Foundation hosted one or more youth tennis clinics for local NJTL chapters. For more information, go to ustafoundation.com.
In 2020, the Series will continue to engage its local tournament communities with a variety of community outreach initiatives, including grassroots clinics and activities involving Net Generation, the youth tennis initiative of the USTA.
