USTA Florida works to make tennis an inclusive sport for all. No matter who you are, we work together to provide a welcoming and safe environment for all players.
We promote, develop and support programs for individuals with differing physical and/or mental abilities and circumstances, and encourage facilities to provide adaptive tennis opportunities in their communities.
Our outreach includes collaboration with organizations who serve special populations, participation at state events and support to Adaptive tennis programs through grants.
