The Campus & Community Outreach Award will honor coaches for leading campus and community-based tennis programs through leading the different USTA sponsored programming listed below as well as promoting tennis through recreational tennis programs. The Campus 10 & Under Tennis Provider of the Year Award will honor coaches for their leadership in promoting the 10 & Under Tennis play format by hosting a variety of events on their campus.
