A Unique Collaboration.
The Lake Nona Sports & Performance District imagines what could happen if all facets of sport came together in one location.
This vision is made possible by long-term partnerships with Johnson & Johnson’s Human Performance Institute, Global Alliance for Health & Performance, YMCA, United States Tennis Association, University of Central Florida and Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute.
These partnerships offer a unique opportunity for collaboration and with available assets will continue to attract others to build a special place for athletics and health innovation.
United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA), a global leader in tennis teacher certification and professional development with more than 15,000 members worldwide, is relocating its headquarters to the Lake Nona Sports & Performance District. The new 10,000-square-foot building will be home to approximately 20 members of the USPTA staff and will feature a technologically-driven office space and lab for learning and training. In addition, the space features an in-house multimedia studio that will allow for TV production, including “On Court with USPTA,” which airs on the Tennis Channel.
