Whether it’s helping out during the US Open or at your local league tournament, volunteers are at the very heart of what the USTA does as an association. In fact, the USTA was founded in 1881 by a group of enthusiastic volunteers and our current president and board of directors are all volunteers. There are many ways that college students can make a significant impact in their community. Community Tennis Associations (CTAs) and National Junior Tennis & Learning (NJTL) programs can always use an extra hand, and we've got grants available to help you get started! Check out the links below for more information.
Section and National Opportunities
As leaders and players with your club tennis programs, there are also opportunities for you to make a difference at the Sectional and National level. As a volunteer-driven organization, the USTA is comprised of a number of committees that work with the association’s staff members to ensure that we are fulfilling our mission to promote the growth and development of the game. You can find more information about committee opportunities below.
