RALLY FOR THE FUTURE: support NJTL CHapters Across the country

rally-for-the-futureWe have been down, but never out. We have come together in our hours of need to find strength, a hand reaching back, a will to carry on. We showed our commitment to youth that they would not be forgotten in troubled times.

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.
