USTA TO PROVIDE RESOURCES TO RENOVATE NASHVILLE’S HADLEY PARK TENNIS CENTER THROUGH DAVIS CUP LEGACY PROGRAM

The USTA National Office, USTA Tennessee, and USTA Southern

to Collaborate on the Project

 

NASHVILLE, TENN., April 8, 2018 – The USTA today announced that it will provide resources to assist in the renovation of the tennis facilities and courts at Hadley Park Tennis Center in Nashville, Tenn., as a part of the USTA’s Davis Cup Legacy program. The legacy program, started more than a decade ago, is designed to leave a lasting mark in the communities which host Davis Cup ties in the United States.

 

The Hadley Park Tennis Center project will include the resurfacing of tennis courts at the facility. The tennis center will also receive new court equipment and miscellaneous repairs will be completed around the grounds. Hadley Park Tennis Center will also soon be initiating new programming incorporating the USTA’s new Net Generation youth initiative to inspire the next generation of tennis players. It will also become a local National Junior Tennis and Learning network (NJTL) organization. NJTL 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. 

 

Nashville hosted Davis Cup for the first time in 40 years when it held the World Group Quarterfinal, where the U.S. defeated Belgium, April 6-8, at Belmont University’s Curb Event Center. A special on-court ceremony took place at Davis Cup today to honor the Davis Cup Legacy in Nashville with USTA Chairman of the Board and President Katrina Adams, USTA Tennessee Executive Director Michael Chamberlain, and Hadley Park Tennis Center Program Coordinator Terrance Quattlebaum.

 

The project will be jointly funded by the USTA, USTA Tennessee, and USTA Southern, providing in excess of $35,000 to the project for its goods and services. With a Davis Cup Legacy project, USTA professional tennis and community tennis departments partner to leave a long-term impression in communities that host Davis Cup ties.

 

"It has been an incredible week here in Nashville, and the enthusiasm and support the community has shown for Davis Cup tennis is truly outstanding," said Katrina Adams, USTA Chairman of the Board and President. "We would like to show our gratitude for the outpouring of support from this city by providing resources to the Hadley Park Tennis Center to refurbish their courts and facilities, as part of our Davis Cup Legacy project.  It is the USTA's mission to promote and develop the growth of tennis throughout the country, and with these resources, this facility will do the same locally by offering Net Generation programming and serving as a home to tennis players of all ages and abilities." 

 

Founded in 1900, Davis Cup by BNP Paribas is the World Cup of Tennis and is the largest annual international team competition in sport, with approximately 135 nations competing each year. The U.S. leads all nations with 32 Davis Cup titles. The U.S. now holds a 219-71 all-time Davis Cup record.
