Berks County Tennis Fund - Organizational Grant Program

The Berks County Tennis Fund was created to develop the game of tennis in Berks County through programs that may include:

  • Creating community tennis programs in areas of the county not previously exposed to the sport;
  • providing equipment and lessons to disadvantaged youth; fostering self-esteem in people with disabilities;
  • running after-school or summer programs that promote fitness, health, citizenship and leadership; and
  • mentoring programs that provide the means and opportunity for minority youth to participate in tournaments and higher levels of play.

The intent is to enhance the quality of life for children and adults of Berks County through the sport of tennis. Programs should promote and teach tennis as a life-long leisure activity, a competitive sport and as a vehicle to develop skills in patience, self-discipline and critical thinking.
