As part of its overall COVID-19 industry relief program, the USTA is offering a Dues Relief Subsidy to certified teaching professionals. The USTA subsidy will cover the majority of membership dues, with the USPTA making up the remaining portion, meaning your 2021 USPTA membership dues will be completely FREE, provided you meet the following requirements by October 1, 2020:

  1. Reside and teach in the United States
  2. Be a USPTA certified teaching professional in good standing
  3. Complete USPTA Continuing Education requirements (details below)
  4. Pass USTA Safe Play training, including a background screening
  5. Show “good faith” and introduce 50 new people to tennis


While the Dues Relief Subsidy is available to all USPTA certified teaching professionals, requirements vary slightly based on your continuing education cycle. Those requirements are shown in the table below. In all cases, current USTA Safe Play certification, including policy terms and background screening is required.


To get started, visit USPTA.com and log in to your account. Check your education status to determine your education cycle and the number of CEUs that you have earned towards that cycle. With that information you can then determine which requirements below apply to you.

There is more than enough time to meet your requirements, so don’t wait until the last minute. The USPTA conducts live weekly webinars and offers a library of recorded webinars that both offer CEUs. Additionally, the upcoming 2020 World Conference Virtual Event is another opportunity to earn CEUs. For information on the USTA’s Safe Play certification process or to check your status, visit the USTA.com.
