The United States Tennis Association Partners with President’s Council on Sports and Fitness: A Milestone for Health and Wellness Initiatives

The United States Tennis Association has made history by becoming the first national sports governing body to partner with the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition, as announced at the Miami Open. During an event attended by guests from the White House, including second gentleman Douglas Emhoff, this collaboration was unveiled.

The President’s Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition, established in 1956, is a federal advisory committee focused on improving the health and wellness of Americans through sports and physical activity. Through this partnership with USTA, national health and nutrition programs will be brought to communities across the country. This initiative will make a positive impact on individuals’ lives by promoting nutrition and physical activity where tennis is played.

At the announcement ceremony, Emhoff expressed his gratitude to USTA for their dedication to this important work. He emphasized that this partnership aligns with President Biden, Vice President Harris and the Biden-Harris Administration’s efforts to combat hunger and promote healthy communities in America. This collaboration demonstrates both organizations’ commitment to improving well-being through sports, fitness and nutrition initiatives.
