Deborah Slaner Larkin, Executive Director of USTA Serves:  " All of us who are involved in growing the sport of tennis are well aware of the wide range of benefits the sport can provide. Tennis has helped shape our lives;  and our experiences in the sport motivate us to redouble our efforts to make tennis the sport of opportunity for all."
