USTA Eastern is one of seventeen geographic sections of the United States Tennis Association, the governing body of tennis in the United States. It was organized in 1921 as the Eastern Lawn Tennis Association. In 1975 as other surfaces were replacing grass it was incorporated as the Eastern Tennis Association and in 1998 the name was changed to USTA Eastern. The purpose of this not-for-profit organization is to promote the development of tennis, establish and maintain
rules of fair play and high standards of sportsmanship and represent, in its jurisdiction, the programs and policies of the USTA.
Thirty-six volunteers have served as president of the organization since its inception. Recreational programs run the gamut from introductory tennis in schools, parks and camps, to junior adult skill-level leagues. Tournaments for age groups 10 to 85 provide competitive tennis. In most age categories there are unranked tournaments as well as those for district, regional, and sectional players who have moved on to make their mark on tennis history.
