Making a difference with our kids in the tennis community!
Serve & Return Chicago, formerly Chicago Tennis Patrons, offers grants and scholarships to support tennis programs for children who might otherwise not have the opportunity to develop their talents and potential.
- Our programs provide all children, regardless of income, race, gender or ability, the opportunity to develop athletic and social skills in a safe and positive environment.
- Grants and scholarships also support high performance tennis programs and individual junior tennis players who have shown promise and potential.
Serve & Return Chicago is a 100% volunteer Board of Directors whose primary focus is helping kids in the greater Chicago area through the sport of tennis. As a separate, non-for-profit, tax-exempt corporation, Serve & Return Chicago is able to accept tax-deductible contributions from generous individuals and organizations. Virtually all (approximately 96%) of the contributions by our sponsors are re-invested in the youth program and the scholarships we support.
