When & Where
Tennis Memphis Inc
For over a decade, Tennis Memphis has impacted the lives of thousands of Memphis’ youth
through its NJTL Tennis Summer Camps, and with year-round youth development
programming at municipal tennis centers and schools in the Memphis area. NJTL
was envisioned and founded by tennis icon Arthur Ashe as a way to make tennis
available to underserved youth. In addition to learning tennis, children are coached in
academic excellence, life skills and leadership, and many of them ultimately attend college
on tennis scholarships. Most importantly, they learn what it means to be good citizens.
