Facilities: Annual Excellence

The USTA’s Outstanding Facility Awards Program recognizes excellent facilities every year.

Every year the USTA honors tennis facilities that meet criteria that includes overall excellence in such areas as site layout, accommodations, aesthetics, amenities and programs that support the growth of tennis. For 2011, the 30th year of the Outstanding Facility Awards program, nine facilities were honored, and one of those was selected for special recognition.

The Jonesville Tennis Center in Gainesville, Fla., was named the USTA’s Outstanding Facility of the Year and honored during the Awards Breakfast at the USTA’s Semi-Annual Meeting held in New York during the US Open. A day earlier, Jonesville Tennis Center along with the other eight Outstanding Facilities were recognized during the USTA Technical Committee meeting.

“I’m delighted to recognize these facilities that promote and develop tennis in their communities,” said Jon Vegosen, USTA president and chairman of the board, in presenting plaques to tennis directors or managers of the nine facilities. Each winner has a 10 and Under Tennis component as part of their programming.

The 2011 recipients, in four award categories, were selected based on the following:
