DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
WHAT WE BELIEVE
USTA Southern California strives to be a model of inclusivity and equity as we bring competitive, social and fitness-oriented tennis programs to Southern California residents. We are fully committed to making tennis accessible to diverse and underserved communities so that they may experience and enjoy the life-long benefits of the sport. Our investment in the players and organizations who serve these communities allows USTA Southern California to extend our reach across the Section, recognizing and supporting young and talented players of color who have the potential to use tennis as a vehicle for obtaining a college or vocational education, or a professional career.
As an organization, we stand firmly alongside progressive organizations which seek to eradicate historical wrongs, working in tandem towards a community where every person is afforded boundless ability to thrive. We believe all of these things will improve our SoCal tennis community and create a stronger industry with better prospects for future success, both on and off the tennis court.
