The USPTA is there for Our Members

The global pandemic continues to endow us with challenges even as we begin 2021. With tennis-teaching professionals being negatively affected, the USPTA wants to assist our members beyond the free dues initiative. Therefore, as we move forward with a renewed perspective, the USPTA is reinvigorated and believes together, we can do more to help support certified tennis-teaching professionals aligned with 510(3)(c) non-profits within the NJTL (National Junior Tennis League). And so, we proudly introduce “Hustle, Hit, Never Quit” (HHNQ), a comprehensive, ongoing marketing campaign to support the USPTA Grant Fund administered by the USTA Foundation. With regular messaging on USPTA.com and USPTA social media channels, the campaign aims to focus attention on the USPTA Grant Fund by building a sense of community within our organization to help raise monies for the fund through the USTA Foundation.
 
The campaign contains three distinct phases:
 
Hustle: The information-gathering phase. We will identify the needs of eligible 501(3)(c) businesses that employ USPTA professionals. 
Hit: The impact phase. We will work with the 17 Divisions to conduct auctions and fundraisers to raise funds to award more grants — and ultimately make an even more significant impact than we did in 2020.
Never Quit: We will continue to look for ways to help others through the USPTA Grant Fund. 
 








The USPTA will work closely with the USTA Foundation to adapt when necessary to help meet the needs of those less fortunate.
 
 
How can you get involved? Located below, you will see two buttons: REGISTER HERE and DONATE HERE. 
For those with a tennis-teaching business associated with a 501 (3)(c) that has been adversely affected by the global pandemic, we encourage you to apply for the grant fund — select REGISTER. Being aligned with a 501 (3)(c) is necessary, and those that aren’t will not be considered. However, it’s not too late to search for a non-profit you can align with — which would make you eligible for a potential grant.
 
If you can aid tennis-teaching non-profits, please click the DONATE button. You will be redirected to the USTA site, where you can select an amount to provide. As an incentive, those that donate $100 will receive a co-branded HHNQ, USPTA, USTA t-shirt — while donors that contribute $250 will be given a special cap.
 
Be on the lookout for the “Hustle, Hit, Never Quit” campaign appearing throughout the year on the USPTA website and the USPTA social media channels. Help promote the cause by spreading the word to your clubs, students, and all those that can help make a difference. 
 
If you are interested, we will work with you and your division to conduct fundraisers and auctions. Visit the USPTA Grant Fund page at ustafoundation.com/usptafund and donate. Let’s work together to make 2021 a successful year for all!
