USPTA Florida U30 Tennis Project Receives $5,000 Grant from USTA Florida

The USPTA Florida Division U30 Project, an initiative by the United States Professional Tennis Association to build a new generation of under-30 tennis industry leaders, in January received a $5,000 partnership grant from the USTA Florida Section. The grant was awarded to support the U30 Project Team members' continuing education in 2014.

"I'm absolutely thrilled with our new partnership with USTA Florida," said Jeremy Hakala, the U30 Project Team fundraising manager. "Thanks to great partners like USTA Florida and 10-S Supply, our young professionals will have opportunities for meaningful careers in tennis, opening doors that they might not have been able to go through before."

One such continuing education opportunity will be USPTA Florida U30 Project Team members attending the 2014 USPTA Florida Division Convention & USTA Florida Semi-Annual Meeting, held jointly at Club Med, Port St. Lucie, Fla., in May.

"The USPTA Florida U30 team's fundraising goal is to raise over $10,000 in order to provide up to 50 scholarships to attend the upcoming USPTA Florida Division Convention & USTA Florida Semi-Annual Meeting," said USTA Florida Director of Competitive Tennis, and USPTA Florida member Jason Gilbert. "This money will give young teaching professionals opportunities to participate in continued education venues such as USPTA state and national conventions, and regional education days."

The USPTA Florida U30 Tennis Project has grown to more than 40 members by the end of 2013.
