A $5,000 grant has been awarded to the Southwest Community Tennis Foundation to construct a new tennis house at the Jimmy Clark Tennis Center in Fort Wayne.
The grant came via the United States Tennis Association's Facility Assistance Program, which aims to support and provide communities access to safe, appealing and functional tennis environments.
“We are committed to enhancing and building more tennis facilities in communities across the country,” said Kurt Kamperman, chief executive, community tennis, USTA. “This program allows us to assist in the development process of providing usable tennis venues to people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds to play and enjoy the health benefits of our great game.”
In 2013, the USTA allocated more than $1.2 million through the Facility Assistance Program.
