    The tennis courts at Flushing Meadows

    The United States Tennis Association has pledged a little more than $10 million for Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, where the group wants to expand and update its aging complex that hosts the U.S. Open, Capital New York reported.

    USTA is giving the money ahead of a City Council vote on its National Tennis Center project. Under its giving plan, the pro tennis group will provide $5 million for capital projects next year; $350,000 annually for three years for maintenance and programming; and then $200,000 annually for the next 20 years. The USTA already pays $500,000 a year in rent to the city’s general fund. [more]
