Local tennis enthusiasts are scoring big with the news that the United States Tennis Association’s Nevada chapter has received a $50,000 grant to further its children’s programs.

Ryan Wolfington, executive director of USTA-Nevada, said he thought Las Vegas was selected by the USTA for the grant because of the success of its 2013 free tennis initiative. "It did so well that when we got the grant, we applied using that information and talked about the success of the campaign,? Wolfington said. ?We had 650 people sign up for free lessons. That’s a pretty big number. ? It’s a hard grant to get. It shows that they believe in your market, that you’ve shown improvement and growth potential. It’s like a stamp of approval."
