“The opening of the USTA National Campus is a monumental milestone for our sport,” said USTA Chairman of the Board and President Katrina Adams. “The new Home of American tennis will redefine how the USTA delivers on its mission and will provide a new vision for the future of tennis in the U.S.”
More than 100 international, national and local events and tournaments are already scheduled at the world class facility in 2017. The tennis center is also open to the public and will serve the Orlando community by providing year round programs for all levels of play.
