The USTA has officially announced that it is building a major new tennis facility in Lake Nona, near Orlando, Florida.

The 63-acre development will have over 100 courts as well as offices, housing, and training facilities. That will make it the organization's largest operating site, with plans to use it for player development, college tennis, and USTA competitions.

The USTA will be moving its player development division and its community development division to the new center.

"Our new facility in Orlando will help ensure we develop the next generation of players, coaches, tennis providers, officials and volunteers," said Gordon Smith, the USTA’s executive director and chief operating officer, in a statement.

The center is scheduled to be completed in three to four years.
