What is an NJTL?

The National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL) network features more than 250 nonprofit youth development organizations that offer free or low-cost tennis and education programming to more than 160,000 under-resourced youth each year.
NJTL 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.

Is RTA an NJTL Chapter?

Yes, RTA actively participates in the NJTL nation-wide network and seeks to develop the character of young people in the Raleigh area through tennis and education. RTA recognizes that Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are essential to achieving our mission of promoting the development of tennis.  We are committed to fostering a tennis community that is inclusive, inspiring youth from under-represented communities to participate in the sport of tennis.

RTA collaborates with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Wake County, Communities in Schools and the Salvation Army to reach participants that might not otherwise have access to tennis.

NJTL Essay Contest

Each summer RTA runs a Local Essay Contest in conjunction with the National NJTL Essay Contest. All Raleigh youth tennis players are encouraged to participate.
