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.
