About USTA Southern
USTA Southern's mission is to promote & develop the growth of tennis!
Founded in 1881, the United States Tennis Association (USTA) is the national governing body for the sport of tennis in this country. In addition to owning the U.S. Open and selecting members of the U.S. Davis Cup, Fed Cup, Olympic and Paralympic teams, the USTA administers a variety of programs nationwide for players of all ages and ability levels.
A not-for-profit organization, the association is divided into 17 sections, of which USTA Southern is the largest. The 181,000+ USTA members living in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee comprise USTA Southern and account for approximately 25% of the total USTA membership.
The USTA Southern's daily operations are carried out by a professional staff based in Norcross, Ga., but policy is formed and much of the organization's work is executed via a Board of Directors and committee structure of over 200 volunteers.
