GREAT LIFE CARES FOUNDATION TENNIS COMPLEX IN SIOUX FALLS, SOUTH DAKOTA RECEIVES 2023 USTA OUTSTANDING FACILITY AWARD
Great Life Cares Foundation Tennis Complex is one of 29 Tennis Facilities from Across the Country Honored for Excellence
ORLANDO, Fla., September 1, 2023 – The USTA recently announced that the Great Life Cares Foundation Tennis Complex in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, is one of 29 winners in the USTA’s annual Outstanding Facility Awards program, which recognizes excellence in the construction and/or renovation of tennis facilities throughout the country.
This facility just finished construction last year. The Great Life Cares Foundation raised $3,000,000 to ensure no tax dollars were needed for the project. The City of Sioux Falls gifted the land which previously had 2 courts and now boasts 12 courts with nice amenities for the community to enjoy. With only one year of operation, they have hosted high school matches, leagues, programming for all levels, and the South Dakota Open.
“Great tennis facilities like the Great Life Cares Foundation Tennis Complex help us to grow the game at the grassroots level, and we are proud to recognize them for their ongoing impact on the sport of tennis,” said Craig Morris, Chief Executive, Community Tennis, USTA. “Great Life Cares Foundation Tennis Complex has embraced many of our tennis initiatives and kept the sport at the forefront of its community each year.”
Facilities were judged on the following criteria: overall layout and adaptation to site; excellence of court surface and lights; ease of maintenance; accommodations for players, spectators and press/officials; aesthetics; graphics (including the use of signs and landscaping); amenities such as casual seating for spectators, food services and social areas; and the facilities’ participation in grassroots tennis programs.
