To provide life-changing opportunities for underserved youth.

  • 13,000 kids.
  • 16 Organizations.
  • One Goal.

The New England Tennis & Education Foundation believes in the power of our great sport to be a teacher, a confidence builder, a friend maker, a lifeline.

Kids who play tennis get better grades in school, are better behaved, are more community-minded and well-rounded overall*. We partner with and support a network of National Junior Tennis and Learning Chapters (NJTL) that share our vision and work every day to provide kids with opportunities they would not have otherwise.

Every NJTL offers free or low-cost after-school tutoring that focuses on academic enrichment, a life-skills curriculum, and tennis in mostly inner-city, underserved communities.
