About the Tournament
The USTA Winter National Championships is a championship event for the United States Tennis Association, put on by the USTA Central Arizona. It comprises one-fourth of the “Grand Slam” of Junior Tennis in the US. Unlike most local tennis tournaments, the juniors who play the Nationals have been either endorsed to be here by their USTA Section, qualified in a preliminary tournament, or have earned a spot based on their national ranking. They are the cream of the crop – the top 128 players in the United States in their age divisions for the June to December season. The USTA has expressed great confidence in the volunteers of the Valley by awarding us not one, but four divisions of this tournament. We are one of two organizations in the entire United States to be awarded four divisions of the Nationals. We are very excited about hosting this prestigious event in the Valley of the Sun.

The USTA Winter National Championships is organized and run totally by volunteers under the guidance of tournament director Sally Grabham. Approximately 50 local residents volunteer their time to make this event a success.

This tournament is a major source of funding for the USTA Central Arizona junior tennis programs in which thousands of youngsters throughout the Phoenix area, many of whom are minority or underprivileged, participate. These programs include after school programs for intercity schools, free instruction and equipment for those who cannot afford to play, as well as scholarships and equipment for nationally ranked players.
