The  Florida branch of the United States Tennis Association (USTA) will break ground ceremonially June 3 for a new headquarters in Orlando, where USTA is building a national tennis campus and tournament venue with more than 100 courts. The Florida branch of the USTA will move its headquarters from Daytona Beach to a 10,000-square-foot building at the USTA National Campus, now under construction in southeast Orlando’s Lake Nona area.

The total cost of the new statewide headquarters is $3 million.  The Florida branch, which has 40,000 members, moved its headquarters several times since leaving its longtime home in Miami Shores. The state headquarters has been in a city-owned rental space in Daytona Beach for the last 14 years. The USTA is the national governing body of tennis. [Orlando Sentinel] — Mike Seemuth
