This show is dedicated to sharing the work we are doing to re-imagine our programs and play in the COVID-19 environment, and ask you, our Florida tennis family, to share your ideas and thoughts.
PAC Study Findings – State of Play in Florida
The Tennis Participation Report is out, and we’re digging into the Florida results to see where we shine, and where we have opportunities to grow. Tune in to hear how the study is compiled and how it stacks up to your experience as a player and provider.
College Community Hubs
With the many first-class university venues in Florida, there is no reason not to make these sites as hubs for local community programs. Dr. Jill Fjelstul, Associate Professor Director of Hospitality in Sports / Professional Tennis Management, Rosen College of Hospitality Management at UCF and Danielle Gooding, USTA Florida Director of Community Tennis will discuss the Collegiate Community Hub concept.

The intent of this episode is to educate players, parents and coaches on the current environment at USTA Florida’s competitive events, why sportsmanship continues to be a priority, (especially in the climate we are living in) solutions on how we can improve sportsmanship, and what are the consequences for all of us if players and parents don’t adapt good sportsmanship habits.

We’ll review the USTA National regulations changes for 2021. With the recent release of the 2021 National and Sectional League Championship calendars, we will share other USTA Florida Sectional news about potential Sectional format changes, and new divisions of play!
