We are a volunteer group that teaches tennis as a platform for mentoring and community building to at-risk youth in five public housing communities in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. Every Saturday from 12:30 - 3:00, May through September, we literally bring tennis to the kids by setting up temporary tennis courts within their communities. Each community comprises a tennis "club", with its own team jersey and volunteer group. At the end of each season, we put on a tennis jamboree with free T-shirts, trophies, and BBQ. All youth participants get a team jersey and compete for their respective club. We hold two fundraisers in Manhattan and Brooklyn to support our efforts. We have fun, play tennis, and make friends!!

Our season begins Saturday, May 30, 2015. Formally sign up to volunteer with KCTL here: http://www.kingscountytennisleague.org/volu...

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
