Upper Piedmont Tennis Association
UPTA is in Upstate S.C. and runs USTA League Tennis. USTA League Tennis is the world's largest recreational tennis league providing organized, structured team matches for all ability levels. The program is open to women and men 18 years of age and older and features a local, state, and sectional championship and culminates in a national championship in each skill level (2.5-5.0).
We, the UPTA Tennis Association and UPTA Foundation, recognize that diversity is absolutely essential to achieving our mission which is, in part, "To promote interest in the game of tennis." For us diversity is the existence of many unique individuals in the community. This includes men and women from different nations, cultures, ethnic groups, generations, backgrounds, skills, abilities and all of the other unique differences that make each of us who we are. As an Association, we are commited to fostering a tennis environment that is more inclusive, to achieving greater diversity within our tennis community, and to inspire men and women from diverse backgrounds, generations, and skill levels to patricipate in the sport of tennis.
