Cy King Community Tennis Fund Supports Local Under-Resourced Youth

In 1969, the National Junior Tennis League was created teaching youth how to play tennis along with the importance of character and education. Today, the National Junior Tennis and Learning network comprises more than 250 national, nonprofit, youth development chapters that offer free or low-cost tennis and education programming to over 160,000 under-resourced youth each year.

The Raleigh Tennis Association (RTA) is an approved NC NJTL Chapter and supported by the USTA Foundation. The purpose of the NJTL Network is to provide free or low-cost tennis instruction and academic programming to need-based youth. RTA’s mission is to grow and develop underserved youth through tennis and education In many cases, our programming offers youth their first exposure to tennis and provides additional opportunities for life-long learning through clinics, after school programming, camps, tournaments, and supplemental academic coursework.

The Cy King Community Tennis Fund, created by the Raleigh Tennis Association to honor Cy King, will help to provide small application-based grants for Raleigh under-resourced youth and youth impacted through NJTL programs in Raleigh. Donations and contributions from individuals and businesses help ensure that tennis exists for all youth to try the game, learn the skills, and compete in match play. Your donations are accepted throughout the year.
