Stacey Allaster Honored With Billie Jean King Leadership Award

October 13, 2023

USTA Chief Executive, Professional Tennis, and US Open Tournament Director Stacey Allaster was honored with the Billie Jean King Leadership Award at the recent Women’s Sports Foundation Annual Salute to Women in Sports.

In partnership with the Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative, the Billie Jean King Leadership Award, presented by Darcie Glazer Kassewitz and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Foundation, recognizes an individual or group who demonstrates outstanding leadership and makes significant contributions to the advancement of women through achievements in sport and the workplace.

For over 30 years, Allaster has been a passionate and determined advocate for gender equality in tennis — from the $1 billion she generated for female players as chairman and CEO of the Women’s Tennis Association, to her brilliant leadership as the first woman tournament director of the US Open in its more than 140-year history – paving a path to the C-suite that other women can follow.
