In order to further its mission, the USPTA created the ADD Program. The USPTA ADD Program is open to tennis instructors who are socioeconomically disadvantaged and cannot otherwise afford to attain USPTA certification. Applicants who are accepted into the ADD program will receive their first year’s dues free. The second year will be 50 percent off and the third year will be 25 percent off. Please note that the certification process must be completed by the end of the second year or the membership will be dropped.

Each ADD applicant's socioeconomic position should be determined through the short-answer questionnaire that includes questions about income, community involvement and future plans once certified as a USPTA Professional. Once we have received and approved the application, the ADD applicant has 2 years to complete the certification pathway. If they do not take the exam within this time, they forfeit their application and will not be able to re-apply for the ADD category.
