10 and Under Line Grants

If you are interested in painting blended lines, painting a playground or other flat surface, or converting a 78' tennis court into four 36' tennis courts, please read below for all USTA 10 and Under Tennis Line Grant information.

*Blended Lines are permanent 36' and 60' tennis lines on an existing 78' tennis court.  Blended lines are always painted using the same color family as the playing surface - in a lighter or darker shade, depending on personal preference - and are 1.5" in width.  Blended lines never intersect 78' tennis court lines, as they stop 3" away from all 78' tennis court lines.  Please view our Blended Line Photo Gallery for examples.

There are 3 categories of line grants:

For each of these grants, the application process and reimbursement process are the same.

  • Meet specified industry standards for project as determined by the USTA Facility Assistance program’s technical team.
  • Demonstrate financial need and matching (up to 50%) of project funds.
