Diversity and Inclusion In Kentucky


USTA KY has a goal of increasing minority, able bodied and disabled body athletes and special populations participation among recreational and competitive players, coaches, volunteers, industry professionals, and administrators, regardless of race, sex, economic background, or religious preferences.

USTA KY has a Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) Committee that is charged with developing program awareness, new initiatives and program continuity with the goal of increasing minority, able bodied and disabled body athletes and special populations participation among recreational and competitive players, coaches, volunteers, industry professionals, and administrators, regardless of race, sex, economic background, or religious preferences.  This committee also includes Wheelchair tennis initiatives and Special Populations initiatives to increase the overall diversity and inclusion of our membership.

 

Kentucky has some excellent D&I Efforts across our state.

Here are a few highlights!


Meg Peavy, Chair of Diversity and Inclusion committee and adaptive tennis advocate, has worked with two programs in Louisville, KY. Annually, she facilitates programming for Families for Effective Autism Treatment and Down Syndrome of Louisville. Programs are entirely volunteer run and participants work on their tennis skills while gaining confidence.

Jane Gamble, Former USTA KY President and longtime tennis advocate, has received several grants to help support programming in Paducah for the Easter Seals of Western Kentucky. This programming provided tennis for all ages and individuals with disabilities and special needs.
