Public Investments Pay Off: Huether Family Match Pointe Receives National Award

Sioux Falls’ own Huether Family Match Pointe is one of 12 winners in the 36th annual United States Tennis Association Facility Awards program, which recognizes excellence in the construction and/or renovation of tennis facilities throughout the country.

In 2015, the City of Sioux Falls invested $500,000 in equipment for the indoor tennis facility. Public/private partnerships make a difference in the quality of life of our community, and this investment allowed for more year-round recreation offerings for Sioux Falls and the region.

To be considered for a USTA Facility Award, facilities must be under the jurisdiction of a park and recreation department, an educational institution, a nonprofit corporation, or be a private or commercially owned and operated facility that offers both USTA and public programming designed to help grow tennis. The Huether Family Match Pointe includes six indoor tennis courts and is the only public, nonprofit facility in the area. Huether Family Match Pointe offers youth and adult lessons, leagues, and tournaments and also hosts collegiate matches, youth outreach programming, and more.
