Growing the game, the modified way!
Keywords:tennis rules, projects, goals, education
Since the launch of the ITF’s Tennis Play and Stay Campaign in 2007 and the change in the rules of tennis in 2012 to facilitate more modified rules tennis training and competition play worldwide, the USTA has been a supporter and promoter of these changes to enhance their outreach in attracting and retaining more youth in the game of tennis. To facilitate this outreach from a programming point of view, a comprehensive outlook was employed that covered the following areas: coach education, training, team and individual competition, and facilities.
