USTA Partners with PCSFN to Promote Health and Wellness through Tennis and Nutrition Initiatives

USTA collaborates with White House sports and nutrition committee as the first national governing body

The United States Tennis Association (USTA) has made history by partnering with the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition (PCSFN), as announced at the Miami Open. This collaboration aims to promote nutrition and physical activity in communities where tennis is played, as part of a federal advisory committee established in 1956 to improve the health and wellness of Americans through sports and physical activity.

During an event attended by guests from the White House, including second gentleman Douglas Emhoff, the partnership was unveiled. Emhoff expressed gratitude to the USTA for their dedication to this important work, emphasizing its significance in advancing President Biden, Vice President Harris, and the Biden-Harris Administration’s efforts to combat hunger and promote healthy communities in the United States. This collaboration exemplifies both organizations’ commitment to improving individuals’ well-being through sports, fitness, and nutrition initiatives.

The partnership between the PCSFN and USTA will bring national health and nutrition programs to communities across the country, making a positive impact on individuals’ lives. The USTA has been dedicated to promoting tennis as a way to promote healthy lifestyles for over 130 years. By joining forces with PCSFN, they can further extend their reach beyond just tennis players to communities at large. With their combined efforts, they hope to create healthier and more active communities across America.
