USTA Mid-Atlantic
Summer Smash
Fundraising Challenge


Celebrate the summer of tennis like never before through a fundraising challenge designed for you and your team! This year, when you participate in the Summer Smash Fundraising Challenge you’ll  raise  money to support the USTA Mid-Atlantic Junior Player Scholarship Program.

The Junior Player Scholarship program, helps beginners, intermediate and advanced youth tennis players find their full potential through the sport by defraying expenses that may hinder participation and progress. The section program provides financial support for lessons, classes, camps - in-person and virtual - as well as equipment and other related costs and is available for any youth tennis players with financial need living in the Mid-Atlantic region.

AND THIS YEAR WE NEED YOU! We have had an overwhelming response for the scholarship program and in this spring cycle of applications alone we will exhaust $10,000 to help youth tennis players in need. But this is not nearly enough to help all that have applied. That’s why we have a goal to raise $5,000 so more scholarships can be awarded. Your participation in this challenge will help a junior tennis player chase their dream.  Will you accept the challenge and start a fundraising team to help more youth players get  scholarships? 


One of our former scholarship recipients shared the following about their tennis journey:
“I tried making the tennis team twice but got cut. The problem was that I only am able to train once a week due to the expenses we cannot cover which really affects and downgrades my level of play in general.” -Anonymous, 2019 Junior Player Scholarship Recipient

Not only will it be rewarding to help youth players with this fundraiser, you and your team have a chance to win prizes for your fundraising success.

1st Place: Citi Open Team Experience! Includes (15) tickets for your team to attend the 2022 Citi Open together this summer in Washington, DC among other surprises!
