Projected to open in 2025, the USTA Mid-Atlantic Tennis Campus will feature 21 outdoor and 10 indoor tennis courts, along with spaces for pickleball, fitness, and community events. This initiative is expected to generate approximately $8.5 million annually in economic impact, bolstering local development and offering new recreational opportunities to residents of Loudoun County.

Tara Fitzpatrick-Navarro, Chief Executive Officer of the USTA Mid-Atlantic Foundation, emphasized the significance of the zoning approval and funding commitment as “crucial steps forward” in achieving the vision of making tennis accessible to all. The campus will not only serve as a sports facility but also as a venue for large-scale competitions and community engagement.

With strong community ties already established, the foundation looks to leverage these connections to foster long-term benefits for the county.
