It’s a simple word, but it is the only word that matters when it comes to tennis in the Pacific Northwest.
USTA PNW is a 501(c)3 nonprofit committed to making the game of tennis and its physical, social and emotional health benefits accessible for all people and communities throughout Oregon, Washington, Alaska and Northern Idaho.
We believe that the game of tennis is a vehicle that can transform lives and that belief is the heart of our mission. Through the sport of tennis, we have seen people and communities grow stronger, healthier, and more connected. Through the work that we do, we aim to make tennis viable and accessible to all people in every community throughout the Pacific Northwest.
We do this by providing free and low cost programs, running adult and junior leagues and tournaments and creating year-round indoor court access to world-class, public tennis facilities and instruction in Tacoma and Vancouver Washington. Explore our impactful programs below:
