Tennis has the power to rebuild the community
We are forever changed because of COVID-19. Our daily lives, how we socialize, and conduct ourselves as a community is now completely different. We also grapple with current events that are challenging on many levels. USTA Mid-Atlantic deeply believes that not only is tennis for EVERYONE but that through the sport lives improve by fostering health, connections, communication, and community.
It is why we work tirelessly to make tennis the most accessible sport in the region. Tennis can help all people – socially, emotionally and physically. Together we can continue to work to #ServeItForward through tennis and build up Mid-Atlantic communities. Click here to read a message from Tara Fitzpatrick-Navarro, CEO USTA Mid-Atlantic.
Thank you for helping us Serve It Forward
Thank you to our Mid-Atlantic players, members and donors for helping us Serve It Forward in the Section. Even during a pandemic, the Mid-Atlantic tennis community stepped up in more ways than one by giving back and leading others during these unpredictable times. The power of tennis brought us all together and enabled us to adapt to a new normal. We are #MidAtlanticProud!
