Giving Back to the Game
The US Open Series enters its seventh year partnering 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 is celebrating 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 will host one or more youth tennis clinics for local NJTL chapters. For more information, go to ustafoundation.com.
