Through the history of organization we have seen tennis transform lives. As a life-long sport, tennis provides the opportunity to engage in physical activity while fulfilling social and emotional needs.
We believe that the sport of tennis should be accessible and free of any barriers to entry, including financial restraints, to every individual living in the Pacific Northwest. To this end, we have created several scholarship funds that directly support low or income restricted youth and families throughout our section. Explore our youth development scholarship programs below.
