National Junior Tennis and Learning is supported by the USTA Foundation, the national charitable arm 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.
Among NJTL’s alumni is former Top 10 ATP player James Blake, who now serves as chairperson on the USTA Foundation’s Board of Directors.
“I grew up playing in an NJTL program, and I know how important it is for kids to have an outlet that really stresses education – education being the key,” said Blake. “That’s the reason I think education was so important for me and hopefully the next generation.”
NJTL Fort Collins was created to provide tennis, education, life skills and leadership to the children of Fort Collins and surrounding communities.
Lewis Tennis provides opportunities for the youth of northern Colorado to be involved in various NJTL programs.
