These youth tennis organizations do an awesome job giving children the opportunity to learn the game of tennis. (This review was entered by a GreatNonprofits staff member)

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

experience, getting kids to play tennis.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

nice, enthusiastic and generous staff giving their time to help these kids.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

organized, professional, enthusiastic.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help make tennis a more popular sport for kids to play among all the other sports kids generally play.

It’s been great working with YTA. I was a kid once sitting in the stands and it’s a great experience to be able to give back to YTA, given that they gave me a great experience when I was younger. *This review was collected on a site visit and entered by GreatNonprofits staff on behalf of the reviewer.

Over the past 15 years I have had the pleasure of acting as a consultant to non-profit organizations that promote health and happiness through the great lifetime sport of tennis. Tennis changed my life from a young age and throughout my career, first as a community tennis staff member with USTA Florida, then USTA NorCal and now as Executive Director with Youth Tennis Advantage, I have seen tennis ignite the sparks of passion and committment that have positively impacted thousands of people--all ages, all cultures, all skill levels and all ethnicities. Personally, I feel if YTA can inspire more children and families to enjoy the outdoors, excercise, socialize and be eager to learn and grow...our communities and our world will benefit.

the dedicated staff and board and the caring and generous donors are best!

Kind and caring with years of experience

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide quality after school programs to thousands more children and build a central scholar athlete facility with all the bells and whistles!

Ways to make it better...

YTA had the funds to hire some of our long time staff to full time status and provide benefits, we could impact more youth and families.

The number of juniors that if not for tennis could not have gone on to college.

Seek out those that could help support the dream of Youth Tennis Advantage having its own office space and tennis courts.
