Our New Head Quarters at Lake Nona
On June 3, 2016 USTA Florida broke ground for our new headquarters to be located in the Lake Nona Sports & Performance District joining the USTA National Campus, USPTA, and Orlando City Soccer Club’s Training Center and Elite Youth Academy.
The anticipated April 2017 completion will mark the fifth headquarters move in USTA Florida’s 67-year history, following headquarter locations in Miami Shores (1949-87), North Miami Beach (1988-92), Pompano Beach (1993-2001), and Daytona Beach (2002-17).

New Headquarters At Lake Nona
USTA Florida had long outgrown the Florida Tennis Center where it rented space from the City of Daytona. The approximate $3 million for the build comes out of the organization’s reserves, was approved by the Board, and does not include government assistance. The spending will not diminish USTA Florida programs and services, and reflects a long-anticipated headquarters move and the solid financial state of the organization.
USTA Florida is one of 17 sections of the United States Tennis Association across the country. USTA Florida operates as an independent organization to oversee and promote tennis in Florida, guided by its own volunteer board of directors, yet works hand-in-hand with the USTA national body. The proximity to the national campus will allow for greater collaboration with the national USTA, while still allowing USTA Florida to focus on growing tennis throughout the state. Our mission has and always will be to serve the entire state.
Approximately 20 of USTA Florida’s largest events have already been scheduled at the USTA National Campus, including the majority of the USTA Florida League Sectionals events.
The Florida Tennis Center is owned by the City of Daytona Beach, and USTA Florida will continue to work with the city to grow tennis in the area and keep the 24-court center a vibrant part of the community.
The headquarters move will not change the association’s mission to promote and develop tennis across the state. It will however provide greater opportunities for innovative collaborations within the Lake Nona Sports & Performance District to impact the sport at every level, from the grassroots to competitive play and beyond.
