(June 8, 2020) The USTA announced on Monday that due to the fallout of COVID-19, that they would be laying off 110 people and closing their White Plains, New York Office. The tennis organization will be restructuring
“We have an opportunity to re-imagine the structure of the organization to better serve the tennis community in the United States,” said USTA Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director Michael Dowse.
“This new structure allows the USTA to be more agile and more cost effective, while getting closer to tennis players at the local level.
“Unfortunately, today represents a challenging day for many of the USTA family who have been negatively affected by the downsizing of the organization, and I would like to sincerely thank each USTA staff member for their dedication to the organization.”
With the cancellation of Wimbledon and the change of dates of the French Open to later September, the decision on whether the US Open will be played is due in mid-June. The tennis season is currently suspended until July 31 due to coronavirus.
