The USTA Foundation has announced a three-year relationship with Deloitte, one of the world’s largest professional services organizations, and as part of the agreement, Deloitte will serve as the presenting sponsor of the National Junior Tennis & Learning (NJTL) essay contest. This year’s essay contest winners will be recognized at the 20th annual USTA Foundation NJTL Essay Contest Luncheon at the Yale Club in New York City on Aug. 26.

The USTA Foundation NJTL Essay Contest is a widely acclaimed educational tool. As part of the contest, NJTL participants are asked to write essays answering a thought-provoking question that requires research and analysis. Each year, the foundation receives more than 2,500 entries. Of those, 10 national winners (one boy and one girl from each age group) receive an all-expenses paid trip to New York to attend Arthur Ashe Kids' Day and the essay contest luncheon.

“On behalf of the USTA Foundation, I am proud to say that we are thrilled to have an organization as outstanding as Deloitte to serve as our very first sponsor for the USTA Foundation NJTL Essay Contest,” said USTA Foundation Executive Director Dan Faber. “We thank them for realizing the outstanding impact that education and tennis can have on under-resourced youth and how the USTA Foundation’s commitment to positively impacting their young lives aligns with their corporate values. This is just the start of a remarkable relationship.”

Deloitte strives to make an impact that matters in the communities where their professionals live and work. Through relationships like this one, Deloitte helps drive measurable change and accelerate positive, societal impact. As the first-ever sponsor of the contest, Deloitte will join forces with the USTA Foundation to help students advance their education, fulfill their potential, as well as inspire future leaders, both on and off the court.

“At Deloitte, we are passionate about education and helping to grow the next generation of leaders,” said Tom Marriott, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “Through relationships, such as our teaming up with the USTA Foundation, we are helping students prepare for the next step in their educational journey.”

In addition to Deloitte’s relationship with the USTA Foundation, the organization also has a multi-year commitment with the USTA, helping to revamp the Association’s core enterprise digital technology and build the USTA’s grassroots digital capabilities.
