There’s always something happening at NYJTL. You can support disadvantaged youth and have fun at the same time by getting involved in our fundraising events and tennis tournaments.

Fundraising Events

  • Summer Gala with the Stars is held each August at the historical Central Park Boathouse. Attendees enjoy gondola rides, live music, dinner, dancing, and a silent auction. Proceeds benefit NYJTL programs, the Arthur Ashe Endowment for the Defeat of AIDS, and other local AIDS charities.
  • Doubles By The Dunes brings together NYC’s finest tennis players and enthusiasts at the East Hampton Indoor Tennis Club each August.
  • The NYJTL Leadership Awards Luncheon brings together supporters to honor outstanding leaders in the community. Speakers include NYJTL participants, former world-class tennis champions, and prominent and influential members of the media and community.

Tennis Tournaments

In 2015, our premier tennis tournaments will take place in the Cary Leeds Center, our new state-of-the-art tennis facility in Crotona Park. You can help make history by contributing to the construction of the first world-class tennis center in the Bronx.

  • NYJTL Mayor’s Cup All-Scholastic Tennis Championship is the largest scholastic tennis event in the U.S., bringing together more than 600 participants from NYC to competing in 11 different events. The tournament is held at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, Corona Park, in June.
