About USTA PNW Tennis Centers

About USTA PNW Tennis Centers

As the governing body of the sport of tennis, USTA Pacific Northwest’s mission is to promote the growth of the game by engaging children, adults and families across Alaska, Washington, Oregon and northern Idaho.

We believe tennis should be affordable and accessible to anyone who wants to pick up a racquet. By building, revitalizing and managing new and existing tennis facilities, we’re able to provide our local communities with more health and wellness programs. Whether you’re new to the game, want to master a new serve or have a junior who is learning to make shots, we have something for your whole family.

Our facilities aren’t just a bunch of tennis courts. They’re community hubs. By creating safe spaces for families to play, hosting league matches and large events, and providing comfortable lounges for friends to watch, our USTA PNW facilities are gathering our communities around the game.

Our Values
Customers first

From self-check in to complementary Wi-Fi to advanced court reservations, we're dedicated to creating an exceptional experience for our players.

A game for everyone

As a mission-based nonprofit, we are dedicated to creating spaces and play opportunities that are affordable, accessible and inclusive to everyone in our community. No matter your age or skill level we have a program for you.

A safe and fun space

As the governing body of tennis, we are dedicated to creating a safe environment for everyone to play in. Each member of our staff is background screened and receives the most comprehensive, technical training. Our pros also all take a positive, personalized approach towards coaching.

Invest in our community

By creating jobs, hosting large-scale events and investing in our local infrastructure, each of our USTA PNW Tennis Centers helps make a positive impact on our local economy and people’s lives. We invest in the entire tennis community by funding renovations of local Vancouver public tennis courts and delivering low-cost recreational programming in schools and community spaces. Additionally, we provide hundreds of free VTC practice hours for local high school players and scholarships so that cost is not a barrier to playing.
