The Community Tennis Program reaches: children throughout New York City's five boroughs by supplying free tennis programming led by trained coaches, match play, loaner racquets and balls, educational activities and special events. Children learn each of the basic tennis strokes, how to rally, and compete at various levels. Programming is City-Wide, in every Council District, in schools and parks.
Spring and Summer Season Programs offer: 6-8 weeks of programming with culminating events at the end of each season. The Spring season runs 3 hours a day, 5 days a week at each site and the Summer Program runs 3-6 hours a day, 5 days a week.
The Winter Early Morning Community Tennis Program is: part of the larger Community Tennis Program, providing children age 5-18 free winter tennis programming during the early morning weekend hours. On-court programming runs from 6-8am on weekends at 7 indoor tennis facilities who donate court time to NYJTL. The program runs for 24 weeks beginning in November and ending in March.
Our curriculum utilizes: The trademark QuickStart Play Format for children ages 10 and under, a summer reading club promoting literacy and keeping young minds active through the summer months, physical fitness to help to fight against childhood obesity, and chess to teach children how to think independently and strategically. District 75 (special needs students) school children take part in weekly adaptive tennis activities at Community Tennis Sites.
