Join us in New Orleans for the 2015 USPTA World Conference!

The USPTA World Conference is the country's largest gathering of tennis professionals, industry leaders and representatives, manufacturers, wholesalers and media. In addition to the educational offerings, USPTA hosts its Board and Executive Committee meetings, evening parties, industry meetings, the nation's largest tennis-only buying show, silent auction, awards presentation and more. This year we are introducing the USPTA Masters Invitational, the grand finale of the USPTA Surface Championships.

This is the premier educational event for the tennis industry, designed to put you at the top of your game with seminars and specialty courses from the world's leading experts. USPTA members will earn 8 continuing education credits for a full registration, plus additional credits for courses attended. All sessions will fall under one of four categories: business, teaching, facility management and sport science.
