At the turn of the 20th century, urban adults began to play tennis as a means of networking and bringing families together. These adult players had many things in common, not the least of which was to instill success-oriented values into their children. In fact, the founding document of the American Tennis Association defined its purpose: To bring colored tennis enthusiasts and players into closer and friendlier relations; to improve the standard of existing clubs, to encourage the formation of new clubs and to structure a national championship tournament. These adult players, who soon became senior players, realized that tennis was the game for a lifetime.
Our professionals will use the free time in their training schedules to visit programs across the country to encourage senior groups and to let them know that their love of the game and their contributions are genuinely appreciated.
Our newest planned partnerships will allow for a variety of social and recreational opportunities, along with an introduction to tennis, competitive play, and healthcare education.
