This year, we will be supporting Sportsmen’s Tennis and Enrichment Center in Dorchester, Massachusetts.
Sportsmen’s offers free and low-cost tennis, academics, and life skills programming to more than 5000 youth annually. Pioneering programs like Volley Against Violence and their Center for Community Wellness extends their outreach to Boston’s underserved communities. Adult recreational and competitive tennis programs welcome diverse players from all over the city and help fund their non-profit mission.
Sportsmen’s is a proud partner of the Boston Public Schools, Brigham & Women’s Hospital and the Boston Police Department. They are also one of the largest members of the USTA’s National Junior Tennis & Learning Network and the only New England chapter to receive its ICON Award.
Sportsmen’s serves more than 5000 young people and 1,000 adults annually. They provide free programs for low-income families in the Blue Hill Corridor, which includes parts of Dorchester, Mattapan, Roxbury, Hyde Park, South Boston and Jamaica Plain – 94% are people of color, and 83% speak more than one language. These neighborhoods have higher rates of chronic illnesses including diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity and COVID-19 – making our health and wellness services vital.
