About Kings County Tennis League
Since 2010, KCTL has been serving the Bed-Stuy neighborhood kids to free tennis lessons every Saturday as a way to provide positive mentoring and community-building. Our dedicated volunteers oversee a competitive environment centered on positive communication to teach the kids skills that go beyond the court.
What started out as the Marcy Tennis Club has expanded to three additional sites at Tompkins, Lafayette Gardens and Sumner residential houses--all under the new umbrella name, Kings County Tennis League. Our mission to Bring Tennis to the Kids is in full swing this season as we work with over 100 kids each Saturday.
When & Where
Kings County Tennis League
Kings County Tennis League (KCTL) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that uses tennis as an instrument for youth development and community building in underserved neighborhoods in Brooklyn, NY. By bringing free tennis lessons to children right where they live, KCTL seeks to build a future in which:
Every child in Brooklyn has regular access to an activity that is healthy, stimulates their personal growth, and exposes them to new concepts, cultures, people and possibilities;
KCTL and Brooklyn residents enjoy a relationship built on trust and respect that empowers families to support the development of their children and their community; and
KCTL’s approach to “localizing tennis” serves as a replicable, scalable model to engage and mentor youth in low-income communities through non-traditional activities.
