Get Out There and Play

Policies and Attitudes Shaping Youth Sports Participation

To kick off the U.S. Open Tennis Tournament, the Global Sport Institute at ASU, in conjunction with adidas NYC and New America NYC, invites you to a discussion on how tennis — and sport in general — can better serve diverse youth populations. Join us for a conversation on how local, national, and international policies — as well as cultural and socioeconomic barriers — impact sports access and participation. A reception will follow.
