The United States Tennis Association (USTA) today announced, through its USTA Facility Assistance Program, that it has awarded a $25,000 grant to Rocky Mountain Tennis Center in Boulder, Colo. In addition, a $5,000 grant has been awarded from the USTA Intermountain Section and USTA Colorado District. The grants will be used to resurface and repair eight existing tennis courts that were damaged by last year’s floods. A check presentation will take place on June 12th at 1 p.m. at the Rocky Mountain Tennis Center.

The USTA Facility Assistance Program aims to support and provide communities access to safe, appealing and functional tennis environments.

“We are committed to enhancing and building more tennis facilities in communities across the country,” said Kurt Kamperman, Chief Executive, Community Tennis, USTA. “This program allows us to assist in the development process of providing usable tennis venues to people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds to play and enjoy the health benefits of our great game.”

Since 2005, the USTA has awarded these grants to support tennis facility enhancements, renovations and new construction projects to provide more and enhanced tennis venues for increased playing opportunities. In total, the USTA Facilities Assistance Program has built more than 35,000 tennis courts across the country in the past seven years, for all ages and abilities to enjoy the sport of a lifetime.

In addition, grant recipients receive technical assistance. The USTA Facility Assistance Program provides industry leading experience in tennis court and facility construction from concept plans to professional construction document review.

By investing in the rehabilitation and development of tennis facilities in the United States, the USTA believes these facilities not only will grow the sport, but provide venues for communities to gather and provide lifelong healthy activity through tennis.

In 2013, the USTA allocated over $1.2 million through the Facility Assistance Program to help support public tennis facility enhancements, renovations, and new construction projects.
