United States Tennis Association/Midwest. The mission of the USTA/Midwest Section is to "promote, develop and service the game of tennis", focusing on the establishment of competitive, developmental, educational and recreational programs for individuals of all ages and skill levels without regard to race, creed, color or national origin. The USTA/Midwest Section also promotes health, character, fair play, sportsmanship and social responsibility through tennis.
National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL). The USTA's National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL), founded by Arthur Ashe in 1969, instills in kids and young adults more than just tennis.
