NJTL is a common denominator for over 40,000 people in our community. I think that is an incredible achievement for such a humble organization. I am impressed with the dedication of the staff and instructors and I am happy to serve in whatever little way I can to ensure that we reach the next 40,000 people.

What's great about NJTL of Indianapolis is the positive impact the organization has on so many children in the Indianapolis area. On the surface, NJTL of Indianapolis appears to be teaching kids tennis. But actually the program teaches children important life skills like confidence, teamwork, and honesty. The lessons that are learned on the tennis courts will certainly impact the participants for the rest of their lives.

NJTL is a unique program that aligns sports with life skills. Participants not only learn the lifelong sport of tennis but learn important lessons such as teamwork, respect and trust. The impact of NJTL on the youth participants is profound and provides great value to the City of Indianapolis.

NJTL is such a great organization. It not only focuses on teaching tennis in the urban Indianapolis area, but it teaches young children important life skills like hard work, education, responsibility and other skill necessary to succeed in having a fulfilling life.

The tennis instructors are great. They're enthusiastic and they love giving back to the community. Most of them had grown up playing in NJTL tennis themselves.

I wish every young person in Indianapolis would play NJTL tennis. They would be so well "served".

NJTL is a great non-profit organization that provides great life skills for kids along with teaching them about tennis. Kids spend time learning about health and ways to make healthier choices in their daily lives. They also learn about team work and getting along with others. I've servied on the board of NJTL for the past two years and it's been a great experience for me. Not only have I been able to help the organization, I've also learned a lot about NJTL's role in the community to keep kids engaged in positive activities.

NJTL is a great organization. I have been involved with tennis from a very early age. I was a tennis instructor for NJTL at the age of 16. In all my affiliations with tennis over the years. The most cost effective way to learn tennis is a ball, a racquet and a big backboard. The backboard is something you won't come across much these days. And garage doors to play against aren't what they use to be. With NJTL not only do you receive top quality tennis instruction. But, you will also get life skills. Food choices, exercise routines outside of playing tennis alone. All this from an experienced staff. Trust me when i say. "You will not find this low cost program for tennis, anywhere except NJTL". Enroll your kids today. Tell all your friends. You won't be disappointed.
