Each NJTL Chapter Hosted the Fourth Annual Return The Serve Fun Day presented by Chase on July 14 and Will Receive $10,000.

 

For the fourth consecutive year, the USTA Foundation has partnered with longtime US Open sponsor Chase to award 10 National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL) chapters with a $10,000 grant each. This donated money will go toward year-round tennis and education programming that engages kids in the A.C.E. curriculum (Academic Creative Engagement).

Chase helped each NJTL grant recipient host a “Return The Serve Fun Day” on July 14 to celebrate each chapter’s programming and its impact on youth. Each event included a variety of tennis-related activities for the youth participants of the NJTL programs, along with their families. In addition, the events included a check presentation to the NJTL chapter leaders by a local Chase representative.

The following NJTL chapters will each receive a $10,000 grant:

  • A's and Aces – New Orleans

  • Dallas Tennis Association – Addison, Texas

  • First Break Academy – Los Angeles

  • MaliVai Washington Youth Foundation – Jacksonville, Fla.

“Chase has been an outstanding supporter and partner of the USTA Foundation, and we can't thank them enough for these generous grants,” said Dan Faber, Executive Director, USTA Foundation. “We are fortunate to have Chase continue to invest in our participants on and off the tennis court. Our partnership with Chase helps deserving youth to excel academically, through tennis, and ultimately through life.”

“It’s important that we equip our kids with the skills they need to succeed at a young age, most importantly through education and physical activity,” said Barbara Paddock, Managing Director for Sports and Entertainment at JPMorgan Chase. “As a sponsor of the US Open for 36 years, we’re proud to support the USTA Foundation and its NJTL programs’ mission to help today’s youth build confidence, camaraderie, and ultimately pursue their dreams.”
