Kids Close To Tennis
We are sports community development nonprofit organization, using tennis as a vehicle to unite, educate and inspire young people in disadvantaged communities, as well as communities and venues in which tennis is not traditionally played.

Learning a Lifetime Sport!

Our goal is to open tennis up to any child and every child, we take tennis into places it’s never been before, into all kinds of communities and neighborhoods. Diversity and inclusion aren’t just token words for us. They are at the heart of everything we do.
Take our work with schools and communities. By helping more and more young players take up the sport, we equip them with a sporting attitude that stays with them for the rest of their lives. For us, there’s no barrier stopping anyone from enjoying tennis. We know this is true because we’ve helped children with a wide range of disabilities play and love the sport.

Kids Close To Tennis is about tennis, of course, but it is also about lessons for life. We think and talk about values such as pride, confidence, perseverance, responsibility, positive attitudes, respect, responsibility and courtesy. We work to make Kids Close To Tennis a memorable experience for our youngsters.


Because tennis is a great sport, yes. But it’s so much more than that. It’s a powerful force in children’s lives that can help them stretch, grow and flourish in so many unexpected ways. It’s not just about what happens on the court. Whatever wider potential someone has inside them, tennis can help bring it out.
