Tennis Memphis is a USTA Community Tennis Association organization, a 4-Star NJTL Chapter and a non profit 501(c)(3) governed by a Board of Directors. Our mission is “to build a better community and enhance lives through tennis and education.” We intend to increase the exposure of the sport of tennis in all areas of our community and are committed to working with other organizations committed to the growth of tennis in Memphis to accomplish this goal.
The scope of what Tennis Memphis does extends well beyond managing the city’s tennis centers. As a member of the National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL) network of 350 non-profit organizations, Tennis Memphis is deeply committed to making tennis available to all children in Memphis with affordable, low-cost , and free year-round programming throughout the community. The National Tennis and Learning (NJTL) Network is an organization co-founded by Arthur Ashe, Charlie Pasarell, and Sheridan Snyder in 1969. Their vision was to utilize tennis as a vehicle to engage children and teach them about life as well as sports. The NJTL Network is supported by the USTA Foundation, the charitable arm of the USTA.
