Our Mission

Established in 1962, the Youth Tennis Foundation of Florida Inc. is a nonprofit organization that offers support for the development of youth tennis in Florida. Our primary goal is to introduce children to the many benefits of tennis, and, among other things, we provide scholarships, grants and awards to deserving players, coaches and tennis facilities.

The YTF is a qualified 501 (c) (3) organization and all donations are tax deductible. We strive to find ways to better the game of tennis in the state and welcome your suggestions and your requests. We are particularly interested in novel programs, such as a rural initiative, to reach out and find those niches which are not currently being serviced by the Florida Tennis Association's various programs.

The YTF is an independent organization which presently consists of a Board of Directors with diversified and varied backgrounds who come from all over the State of Florida to represent each of the 8 USTA Florida Regions. We are actively looking to add creative, dynamic and energetic people to our group.

Contact us to learn more about the YTF and our goals to brighten futures.
