The Tennis On Campus Alumni Event Grant provides financial support and resources to colleges and universities interested in hosting a Tennis On Campus Alumni Event at their school.
This grant will present approved campuses with up to $1,000 each for the express purpose of creating and hosting an inaugural coed USTA Tennis On Campus Alumni Event at their school. Receiving the grant also opens up the possibility that participants could get free tennis gear from top manufacturers!
The alumni event should be hosted by the school’s current club tennis team—with oversight from Rec Sports—as a fundraiser and leadership development tool, and it must have a minimum of 20 student and 20 alumni participants. Appropriate documentation of the event—including but not limited to photos, program flyers, marketing materials, participant counts, etc.—must be submitted to NIRSA after the event has been completed.
By hosting a USTA Tennis On Campus Alumni Event on your campus, you can enhance your current student athletes’ leadership experience, help steward donors, and reconnect with alumni—all while providing your existing club tennis team with a fundraising opportunity. The USTA and NIRSA expects that applying schools will make every reasonable effort to create an inclusive environment of leadership, networking, charitable giving, and camaraderie between staff, students, and alumni.
