    Making a Difference with Our Kids in the Tennis Community!

    About Chicago Tennis Patrons

    The Chicago Tennis Patrons provides kids in the greater Chicago area, regardless of income, race, gender or ability, an opportunity to learn the game of tennis while gaining values, building friendships and developing a desire for an active lifestyle. Our primary focus is to make a difference with our juniors in the tennis community by reaching out to those who may not otherwise experience the game of tennis.

    The Patrons encourage participation at all levels of tennis by awarding grants and scholarships, and place a very special emphasis upon the National Junior Tennis & Learning (NJTL) which presents entry level and grass roots tennis to boys and girls of the city and surrounding areas.
