USTA collaborates with White House sports and nutrition committee as the first national governing body

The United States Tennis Association has made history by partnering with the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition. This partnership, unveiled at the Miami Open, aims to promote nutrition and physical activity in communities where tennis is played.

The President’s Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition (PCSFN) was established in 1956 as a federal advisory committee focused on improving the health and wellness of Americans through sports and physical activity. By collaborating with the USTA, this partnership will bring national health and nutrition programs to communities across the country, making a positive impact on individuals’ lives.

During the announcement, second gentleman Douglas Emhoff expressed gratitude to the USTA for their dedication to this important work. He emphasized the significance of this partnership in advancing President Biden, Vice President Harris, and the Biden-Harris Administration’s efforts to combat hunger and promote healthy communities in the United States. This collaboration exemplifies both organizations’ commitment to improving well-being through sports, fitness, and nutrition initiatives.
