Jersey Mike’s support of the USTA Foundation makes a tremendous impact. Since 2019, Jersey Mike’s has raised funds for the USTA Foundation, helping under-resourced kids across America. This year, Jersey Mike’s went above and beyond to host a weekend fundraiser. On September 10-11, 2022, Jersey Mike’s donated 20 percent of sales at the company’s more than 2,300 locations nationwide to the USTA Foundation. Local stores across the country joined the effort to benefit USTA Foundation youth. The celebration of the USTA Foundation’s mission to bring tennis and education together to change lives impacts thousands of kids in our grassroots communities.

USTA Foundation recognizes and applauds the monumental effort and impact of Peter and Tatiana Cancro, and the entire Jersey Mike’s team. Thank you, Jersey Mike’s, for your dedication to the youth of the USTA Foundation chapter network and for your unwavering enthusiasm in our work to serve up dreams.

"It is carrying out Arthur Ashe’s mission in the most amazing way': Hear from USTA Foundation President Kathleen Wu on ‘Rally for the Future,' the largest individual fundraising campaign in USTAF history and the growing popularity of tennis on CBS Local Sports digital platform, posted in 20 major markets across the U.S. 

The Bryan brothers on-court with NJTL students during 2021 Raise a Racquet.In 1969, the National Junior Tennis League was created by Arthur Ashe, Charlie Pasarell and Sheridan Snyder as a way to gain and hold the attention of young people, with the hope of teaching them the importance of character, getting an education and becoming productive citizens.

Today, the now-named National Junior Tennis and Learning network features more than 250 nonprofit youth development organizations that offer free or low-cost tennis and education programming to over 160,000 under-resourced youth each year.

The NJTL network is supported by the USTA Foundation, the national charitable organization of the USTA. The work done by its member chapters includes after-school tutoring that focuses on academic enrichment, a life-skills curriculum and, of course, tennis.
