About NJTL
Fort Collins.

National Junior Tennis and Learning is supported by the USTA Foundation, the national charitable arm of the USTA. The work done by its member chapters includes after-school tutoring that focuses on academic enrichment, a life-skills curriculum and, of course, tennis. Among NJTL’s alumni is former Top 10 ATP player James Blake, who now serves as chairperson on the USTA Foundation’s Board of Directors. “I grew up playing in an NJTL program, and I know how important it is for kids to have an outlet that really stresses education – education being the key,” said Blake. “That’s the reason I think education was so important for me and hopefully the next generation.”

Our History.

Foundation.

The National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL) network is a nationwide network of community tennis organizations seeking to develop the character of young people through tennis and education. NJTLs are unique because they offer a variety of on-court programming and also educational and life skill components designed to enhance a child’s overall development. Founded in 1969, this growing network of tennis providers share similar values, ideals and goals by reaching out to those who may not otherwise have the opportunity to play tennis, instilling in youngsters the values of leadership and academic excellence, and by giving all kids the opportunity to fully develop their tennis skills so they can derive a lifetime of enjoyment from the sport.
