What We Do

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 our Center for Community Wellness extend our outreach to Boston’s underserved communities. Adult recreational and competitive tennis programs welcome diverse players from all over the city and help fund our non-profit mission.

We are proud partners of the Boston Public Schools, Brigham & Women’s Hospital and the Boston Police Department. We 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.
