“If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster and treat those two imposters just the same”

Welcome to USTA Southern’s “Honor the Game” webpage. This webpage is dedicated to promoting good sportsmanship throughout all players in the south.

Parents and kids alike love sports, and it's easy to get caught up in a game and become focused on winning. Yet there is much more to be gained from the sports experience than winning matches. When children are involved in tennis, they are able to learn and put into practice values that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.

USTA Southern has produced this short 2 ½ minute video that is below, we encourage you to watch this video with your friends, parents and coaches. It’s OK to laugh at some of the content, there won’t be a test at the end. We hope you enjoy the video and get something out of it.
