Serve & Return Chicago, formerly Chicago Tennis Patrons, is committed to promoting tennis at the local level. To fulfill this mission, the Serve & Return Chicago offers program grants to assist non-profit organizations with the development, continuation or expansion of junior tennis programs in the Chicago District. Program grants may be used to start junior instruction programs and/or leagues for junior players of all abilities or for equipment to support these programs.
Serve & Return Chicago also honors individuals active within the tennis programs through annual awards. These awards recognize those who achieve success within a program or those who help a program succeed.
