Make An Impact With The Big Serve -A Day Of Service!

May 7, 2009 01:03 PM

Take Heart, Take Part, Take Action. Join The Big Serve, the USTA’s effort to get those who love tennis involved in helping to grow the game in their own community.


USTA Florida’s Section Championships are held at the Florida Tennis Center in Daytona Beach. During all events from May to August, USTA Florida will be accepting donations of financial assistance, food, clothing, office supplies, personal hygiene items, etc. to benefit the STAR Center in Daytona Beach.

The STAR shelter provides boarding for medically needy homeless people as they are released from the hospital. Families may stay in the shelter “up to 6 months”. During this time they are required to find a job and keep it, attend case management appointments, seek assistance with substance abuse issues, send their children to school, and assist with chores in the facility. The shelter provides tutoring and classes to help families manage after they leave.

For more information about the STAR Center, please visit www.homelessindaytona.org.

USTA Florida will have boxes throughout the events to collect items to donate to the shelter. We appreciate the generosity of our participants and are proud to partner with the STAR Center.

We will collect items for the following events:

May 15 – 17 USTA League 3.0/4.0 Senior Section Championship

June 6 – 11 USTA Florida Jr. State Closed Championships

July 10 -12 USTA League Central Adult Region Championship

July 17 – 19 USTA League NE Adult Region Championship

August 7 – 9 USTA League Adult Section Championship
