As you may know, I recently moved to Manhatten and I have been looking for a way to continue my passion for tennis. I heard about Kings County Tennis League, a charitable organization that uses tennis as an instrument for youth development and community building in underserved neighborhoods in Brooklyn, NY. I recently started volunteering with KCTL and every thing I have to say about it is great. It provides kids with free tennis sessions that teach them both tennis and life skills. The kids have a lot of fun being on the court with their friends and learning new skills. Their laughs and abundant amount of energy and pure excitement when they finally learn to hit the tennis ball over the net explain it all.
Nonprofit In A Nutshell
Kings County Tennis League (KCTL) is a 501(c)(3) that uses tennis as an instrument for youth development and community building in underserved neighborhoods in Brooklyn, NY.
About The Fundraiser
KCTL is hosting a tennis tournament fundraiser with the goal of raising a grand total of $7,000. Each participating player is expected to raise at least $350.
Where Your Awesome Donation Is Going
The amount we raise will turn an under-utilized space in the heart of a Brooklyn community — Lafayette Gardens — into four permanent public tennis courts (one full-length court, and three miniature courts) along with a classroom. This space will be used to meet increasing demand for a place where kids can learn, play, and grow in an environment that’s supportive and fun. Feel free to scroll through the photos modeling this concept!
