Review for National Junior Tennis League of Indianapolis Inc, Indianapolis, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As an inner-city youth growing up in one of the worst neighborhoods, my parents sought ways to keep me active and off the streets. I began participating in NJTL at the age of six and did so until I was 17. Each summer I looked forward to participating. I also played in the winter program. NJTL taught me more than just tennis. I learned discipline, honesty, respect, appreciation, and sportsmanship. I can truly contribute my time on the tennis court each year to my success as an adult. This includes obtaining two degrees (undergraduate/graduate) and succeeding professionally. I sincerely thank NJTL of Indy for existing and offering the opportunity for inner-city youth to enjoy a positive, life-changing experience.

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

Physical capability, mental ability, and social skills.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Generate more funding to increase the hours of operation for participants.
