OUR MISSION
To help youth build strength of character and a foundation for success on the tennis court, in the classroom and in life.
 

Grassroots is a youth development nonprofit organization that uses the sport of tennis to engage youth in holistic out-of-school time programming. This free, year-round program combines tennis instruction with academic support and character development.

Grassroots is a chapter of the USTA National Junior Tennis and Learning network.

 

Grassroots serves over 250 children each year ages 5 to 18 with a relationship-first approach that brings together children and their families with dedicated volunteers and caring staff.

Meet the kids
“Everything I’ve learned in tennis has made me a better person on and off the court ... in school, becoming a better student, just being a better person overall.”
