Tennis Goes Green: USTA Partners with White House to Promote Healthy Living Through Sports and Nutrition Initiatives

The United States Tennis Association has made history by becoming the first national sports governing body to partner with the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition. This announcement was made at the Miami Open, where guests from the White House, including second gentleman Douglas Emhoff, were present. The partnership aims to promote nutrition and physical activity in communities where tennis is played.

The collaboration between the PCSFN and USTA will bring national health and nutrition programs to communities across the country, making a positive impact on individuals’ lives.

During the announcement, Emhoff expressed gratitude to the USTA for their dedication to this important work. He emphasized the significance of this partnership 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 the commitment of both organizations to improving the well-being of individuals through sports, fitness, and nutrition initiatives.

The partnership between USTA and PCSFN will also help increase awareness about healthy eating habits among tennis players. With more than 12 million players nationwide, tennis provides an excellent opportunity to reach out to people who are interested in living a healthy lifestyle.

The collaboration will involve developing educational materials that highlight nutrition and physical activity in communities where tennis is played. These materials will be distributed through various channels such as social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, among others.
