Hadley Park Tennis Center Reveal

USTA Chairman of the Board and President, Katrina Adams, joins Tennessee in celebrating $60,000 Renovation Reveal


USTA Tennessee was proud to host the Hadley Park outdoor court renovation reveal as a part of the the USTA's Davis Cup Legacy program on August 10, 2018.   Funds were donated through USTA National's Legacy Program which was started more than a decade ago, and is designed to leave a lasting mark in the communities which host Davis Cup ties in the United States. Both USTA Southern and USTA Tennessee also contributed to the fund as part of the collaboration.


Special guest Katrina Adams, Chairman of the Board and President of USTA, made a stop in Nashville to personally congratulate the Hadley Tennis Center. “It is an honor to be here and be a part of this and understand the importance of the occasion…I want to congratulate the forefathers of the sport and to those who have really kept the life of this park going…Hadley Tennis Center is such a worthy recipient and this will be a safe haven where youth can come and learn the sport.”  Katrina Adams was joined by USTA Executive Directors and State Presidents from the Sothern Sections as well as Metro Parks and Recreation board and staff and local community residents. 


The Hadley Park Tennis Center project included the resurfacing of tennis courts at the facility. The tennis center received new court equipment, such as score keepers, benches, awnings, teaching carts and balls. Hadley Park Tennis Center will soon be initiating new programming that incorporates the USTA's new Net Generation youth initiative to inspire the next generation of tennis players.  They also introduced the newly established local National Junior Tennis and Learning network (NJTL) organization, Friends of Hadley Park which will be hosting youth clinics and event all to benefit the community surrounding Hadley Park.  NJTL network is made up of more than 350 tennis and education chapters nationwide that are supported by the USTA Foundation through grants, scholarships, and technical assistance. These chapters reach more than 200,000 under-resourced youth on an annual basis.


Hadley Park is rich in history and was established in 1912 as the First African American Park in the US. The Hadley Tennis program has been active since 1953 and has had a long-standing relationship with USTA-Tennessee in promoting outreach for juniors in the local community.  The next time you’re in town, stop by and see the great work done by USTA!
