Atlanta Youth Tennis & Education Foundation, an Atlanta organization that educates those aged 5-18 on physical activity and lends academic support that prepares them for the future has received a $15,000 grant from USTA Serves, the charitable arm of the United State Tennis Association (USTA).

This USTA Serves grant will make it possible for AYTED to expand its after-school and summer programs. This occurs with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta (BGCMA). The funds will aid curriculum, increase tennis instruction, and put a BGCMA intramural league in three additional sites.

Atlanta is a huge city for youth tennis, so this grant will be well received.

"We are proud to continue to honor some of our nation’s most successful and thriving tennis and education programs, who devote their missions toward servicing others, especially our under-served youth,” said Dan Faber, USTA Serves Executive Director. “We hope they’re able to use these grants to continue their outstanding work, and as they keep education, health and tennis in the forefront, I look forward to the impact they will have in fostering future leaders and champions.”

This $15,000 grant is part of the 2014 spring funding cycle.

In total, USTA Serves awarded 46 community tennis and education organizations in excess of $429,000 in grants. AYTEF has previously received six awards, totaling $77,000.

USTA Serves, was established years ago to award organizations that provide disadvantaged, children the opportunity to learn to play tennis, improve their academic skills in a structured format and just be active.
