    How much are your USTA fees?

    Read this to see what this fee is all about. It’s not whining about a fee increase. It’s fighting blatant abuse of power and discrimination against public parks, schools and low income players by the Board members who’s private clubs would be the only ones benefiting from the $1.4-1.8 million a...

    How much are your USTA fees?

    The fee NorCal’s Board approved and the discussion is not merely about the amount of $54 it would cost to join the League. It’s about the discriminatory, self-serving nature of the fee and how the Board members themselves are pretty much the only ones benefiting from the extra $1.4 million this...

    USTA NorCal "Facility Use Fee"?

    100% of the $25 will go to “member facilities” which are mostly private clubs. USTA NorCal will see not a single penny and, thus, will NOT be able to use for anything, not grow communities, develop junior programs or any other support a not-for-profit organization would give to its community...

    USTA NorCal "Facility Use Fee"?

    The 2019 proposal was never published, but in 2010 the fee was supposed to be for “private clubs only.” The language has since been changed to “member facilities,” per the meeting minutes between 2016 and 2019, which means any facility that pays membership fees to USTA. Most of these are private...

    This fee has nothing to do with USTA National or the US Open or the National Campus in Florida. It’s a NorCal specific fee that was solely approved by NorCal’s Board of Directors, 9 of them to be exact.

    Sign the Petition to Stop NorCal’s “Facility Use Fee”

    USTA NorCal's Board of Directors approved a $25 'facility use fee.' This tax will be added to every League registration and paid directly into the pockets of “member orgs,” which are mostly private clubs. The Board brazenly passed this tax WITHOUT consulting League staff or the Adult League...
