About This Organizer

Tennis Memphis was founded in 2001 and has a contract with the City of Memphis to manage and operate seven Memphis Public Tennis Centers. Tennis Memphis is a USTA Community Tennis Association organization, and a nonprofit 501(c)(3) governed by a Board of Directors.  Our mission is to unleash tennis and raise the profile of the sport through our passion, programming, facilities and care for the welfare of our citizens and city.  We intend to increase the exposure of the sport 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 nearly 600 nonprofit organizations, Tennis Memphis is deeply committed to making tennis available to all children in Memphis with year-round programming throughout the community.
Our NJTL youth programs play an integral role in the character development of children who would not otherwise have access to tennis. National Junior Tennis and Learning was founded in 1969 by tennis legend Arthur Ashe and two of his compatriots as a way to make tennis available to traditionally underserved youth, regardless of gender, race, or socioeconomic status.
Our flagship event is the annual NJTL Tennis Summer Camps. These are intensive, fun seven week daily tennis camps operated at all 7 public tennis centers and 20 parks and community centers The camp was provided free of charge to almost sixty percent of the 2,500 five- to eighteen-year-old children who participated in 2012.
As a charitable organization Tennis Memphis appreciates your tax deductible donations.  We rely on
