Strategic Partners - USTA Southern California



USTA Southern California has partnered with several world-class organizations which strengthen our resolve to improve communities by using tennis as a vehicle to support health and wellness. Through tennis play and friendly competition, we aim to promote character-building traits like sportsmanship, resilience, confidence, self-esteem and positive habits throughout Southern California.



Since 2019, USTA Southern California has been working closely with the City of Los Angeles Recreation and Parks Department to upgrade public park tennis facilities and bring highly subsidized tennis programming to the City’s youth.

The program began in 2019 with seven pilot sites and has now launched at 20 sites throughout the City of Los Angeles. Click the toggle below to view locations where PlayLA tennis programs are currently offered.

Through our partnership with the Beyond the Bell Middle School Unit, tennis has been delivered to over 15 schools throughout the Los Angeles Unified School District during recent school years.

USTA Southern California has supported Beyond the Bell coaches by providing on-court training, curriculum, and equipment to help them deliver the physical, social and emotional benefits of tennis to their students. Most schools have offered tennis at least two times per week and competed within their local region for two rounds of interscholastic competition.


USTA Southern California has worked with the LA84 Foundation for more than 34 years, going back to LA84’s founding with the surplus from the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games!

In recent years, we have expanded our work with LA84 beyond NJTLs to include schools, parks, adaptive programming, and the Youth Leadership Council. LA84 represents the Gold Standard among organizations committed to providing youth sports programs to underserved communities, and it is an honor that the Foundation has demonstrated sustained confidence and support for the work of USTA SoCal in meeting its criteria related to tennis programming.
