NIRSA and the United States Tennis Association (USTA) are pleased to announce the Tennis On Campus Start-Up Grant, which will offer financial support and resources to colleges and universities interested in starting a tennis sport club on their campus. NIRSA and the USTA have partnered to bring this grant to a wide spectrum of campuses, and resulting new sport club teams are welcome to compete at the USTA Tennis On Campus Section Championships held in their region.
Each school that is awarded a Tennis On Campus Start-Up Grant will be given up to $750 for the purpose of developing a new Tennis On Campus coed league or sport club. Only institutions that do not currently have a club tennis program are eligible to apply for this grant.
By offering a USTA tennis sport club program through your Recreational Sports Department, you’ll enhance the college experience for recreational student athletes, promote a healthy lifestyle, increase social and professional networking opportunities for the student population, and increase the regular use of your campus’ tennis facilities.
This is an exciting new development in the USTA’s and NIRSA’s fifteen-year partnership. Take advantage of this wonderful opportunity and apply for a Tennis On Campus Start-Up Grant today!
