National Junior Tennis League Celebrates 40th Anniversary

Thursday, April 29th, 2010


Join us on Friday, August 13, 2010 as Arthur Ashe Youth Tennis and Education celebrates the 40th Anniversary of the National Junior Tennis League (NJTL).

We are marking the longevity of NJTL. This celebration honors its founders and key program leaders as well as four decades of players and staff.

The USTA/National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL) network is a nation-wide group of community tennis organizations seeking to develop the character of young people through tennis and education. Founded in 1969 by Arthur Ashe, Charlie Pasarell, and Sheridan Snyder, this growing network of tennis providers share similar values, ideals, and goals by:

-reaching out to those who may not otherwise have the opportunity to play tennis -instilling in youngsters the values of leadership and academic excellence -giving all kids (regardless of income, race, gender) the opportunity to fully develop their tennis skills so they can derive a life time of enjoyment from the sport.

NJTLs are unique because they offer a variety of on-court programming and also educational and life-skill components designed to enhance a player’s overall development. These educational components are diverse in nature, but can vary from things like mentoring, drug and alcohol counseling, to things like computer skills training, health and nutrition, and college preparation.

The NJTL is a great way for kids to get exercise, make friends, and have fun in a team-oriented and safe environment.
