A new two-year term and the administration of new USTA President Katrina Adams formally got underway at the Boca Raton Resort and Club April 9-13, 2015 as USTA again outdid itself with a remarkably well-organized and productive Annual Meeting and Conference.  Arguably the world’s leading national governing body of any sport, the USTA continues to raise the bar with its emphasis on diversity, inclusion, and forward-thinking to grow tennis throughout the U.S.  From major capital improvements at the BJK National Tennis Center (site of the U.S. Open) to the recent groundbreaking of the next home of American tennis (and USTA headquarters) in Lake Nona, Florida, there were too many highlights to mention here.  Special congratulations to the Learning and Leadership Development Committee and staff who provide amazing resources and educational opportunities that make the USTA volunteer experience incredibly fulfilling and rewarding.

As chair of the Tennis Rules and Regulations Committee, one area of emphasis is promoting greater awareness and understanding of tennis rules, regulations, and etiquette.  If you’d like a quick introduction to the ITF Rules of Tennis or the Code (the Players’ Guide to Fair Play and the Unwritten Rules of Tennis), please check out our webinars (each one is less than 10 minutes):
