Park Agency Tennis Assessment

BACKGROUND:

The United States Tennis Association (USTA) and the National Association of Park Foundations (NAPF) have entered into a collaborative relationship to promote the growth of tennis by strengthening local park systems.

The NAPF is nationwide membership organization comprising more than 100 local park foundations, which serve as the citizen-governed charitable partner of municipalities’ parks and recreation departments. The NAPF provides its members with organizational resources and educational programs that enhance and strengthen park systems in their communities.

As part of the collaboration between the two organizations, six NAPF members will be chosen to participate in a pilot program that will include completing the USTA’s Municipality and Park Assessment, which analyzes a community’s capacity to successfully deliver tennis to its residents. Both organizations will also explore additional ways to expand and enhance tennis offerings in communities around the country through the parks and recreation system, while also promoting the health benefits of tennis.

Please feel free to reach out to Kevin D. Korenthal at (940) 448-0057 or execdir@the-napf.org with any questions or interest you may have in the assessment tool and grant programs being offered through our partnership with USTA.
