USTA Awards BCP Tennis Grant

The United States Tennis Association (USTA)/Mid-Atlantic has awarded the Baltimore Curriculum Project a Diversity & Inclusion Signature Program Grant of $1,125. The grant will help BCP bring tennis to over 800 mostly African-American and Hispanic-American students from low-income families in East Baltimore.

USTA/Mid-Atlantic is a not-for-profit organization committed to promoting tennis by offering quality recreational and competitive programs for people of all ages and abilities. The USTA Diversity and Inclusion Committee was formed by the USTA to increase minority participation-particularly in the African-American, Asian, Latino, Hispanic, and Native American communities.

We would like to thank USTA/Mid-Atlantic for supporting our schools. In June USTA hosted a tennis event at Hampstead Hill Academy to introduce over 400 elementary and middle grades students to "10 and Under Tennis."
