Inspired by Arthur Ashe’s proactive life as a conscience leader, humanitarian, educator and athlete, the Arthur Ashe Learning Center promotes his legacy to educate and motivate individuals–with an emphasis toward inspiring youth. By vividly focusing upon the areas of education, health and wellness, citizenship and self-reliance, the AALC fosters empowerment and leadership in the individual and the community, elevating their sense of purpose and quality of life. Arthur's legacy has resulted in nearly a quarter of a million at-risk youth across the U.S. being in USTA National Junior Tennis and Learning programs (NJTL's). 2013 marks the 20th anniversary of Arthur's passing and to commemorate his vision of service to others. This event will also honor local tennis players, coaches and program leaders who make Northern California a better place by giving back to their own communities.

Beyond The Baseline means providing opportunity, access and resources to disadvantaged youth from all communities to enable them to play tennis and excel in academics through organized community tennis and education programs. Proceeds from this event will benefit the Northern California Tennis Foundation which aligns with this initiative.
