Diversity and Inclusion Statement
Diversity and Inclusion is a strategic priority for the USTA and the MTA. Diversity allows us to touch "All of America" and Inclusion allows "All of America" to touch us. Our responsibility as the National Governing Body for the sport obligates us to identify and lead in removing barriers to allow us to be inclusive so that tennis reflects all of America.
We celebrate the open format -- the idea that anyone from anywhere should be able to play and compete. That’s the driving force behind our Diversity & Inclusion strategy, designed to grow and promote our sport to the next generation of fans, players and volunteers. And to do that, we are removing barriers and creating opportunities wherever we can so that tennis becomes a true reflection of all of Mississippi.
