USTA President Shares Message on National Tennis Month for May
January 31, 2022
USTA Chairman of the Board and President Michael McNulty shared this message on Monday about the upcoming National Tennis Month for the month of May.
I’m excited to share the news that once again this year, we will be celebrating May as “National Tennis Month,” which provides us all with the perfect opportunity to raise awareness around our great sport and promote it as healthy, fun, safe, and accessible to people of all ages and abilities.
Tennis has enjoyed some truly impressive growth—all the more remarkable in the face of the pandemic. And during National Tennis Month, the USTA, along with many of our partners in the tennis world, will be making a concerted effort to add to our sport’s momentum by providing resources, ideas and support for coaches, facilities, Parks & Recs, Community Tennis Associations, NJTLs, and providers of all kinds to help bring new players into tennis and reinvigorate those who’ve already made this sport a part of their lives.
The USTA is offering a host of marketing and promotional resources for providers to promote National Tennis Month. I encourage all of you to be proactive in using these materials and in pointing your local providers to these resources so that we can do the best-possible job of spreading the good word about our great sport. All of these excellent resources are easily accessed on USTA.com/NationalTennisMonth.
I also encourage everyone to use the hashtag #NationalTennisMonth in all of your programming and promotions throughout May, and to make use of the digital National Tennis Month signature attached to this note (and downloadable on the website) as a way of generating awareness leading up to May.
This is an exciting time for tennis; a time of growth and great momentum. National Tennis Month is a perfect way to spread the word, and celebrate all that is wonderful about our game. I encourage you to start your planning now!
