Whether it's a racquet tap at the end of a match, giving a fair line call, or going out of your way to help an opponent, your sportsmanship is what makes tennis such an incredible sport. Even the little things always add up on and off the court and USTA Texas is proud to recognize the many ways you show your sportsmanship every time you play.


Sportsmanship is central to tennis, and USTA Texas and the Texas Slam are dedicated to promoting a fair competitive atmosphere. Additionally, USTA Texas is committed to supporting players in their efforts to be respectful and fair competitors through raising awareness and promoting positive sportsmanship behaviors.


We're proud to launch a new way to commit to sportsmanship and share that you're on board to help make tennis the best it can be. Take the sportsmanship pledge today!
