Partnership breaks down barrier to tennis

In 2016, USTA MAS partnered with local nonprofit, Leveling the Playing Field, to tear down the barrier of equipment costs for students that come from low-income neighborhoods. Thanks to the generosity of numerous USTA individual and organizational members, USTA MAS and LPF has collected tennis equipment to start new programming in more than 25 schools and communities across the section. In 2017, we are seeking to grow this impact by identifying more schools and communities that are in need of free equipment. But we need your help!

Are you or do you know an organization that could benefit from this program? The program provides free sporting equipment to nonprofits or public agencies that currently provide or are seeking to provide tennis programming in the communities they serve.

Contact Ian Cohen at ian@levelingtheplayingfield.org or call (301) 844-5621 for more information.
