Cy King Community Tennis Fund
The Cy King Community Tennis Fund was created by the Raleigh Tennis Association to honor Cy King. The Fund provides financial assistance to
junior players from under-resourced communities enabling them to participate in clinics, camps, private lessons, and tournaments. The fund’s Advisory Board and the Raleigh Tennis Association will work with other organizations such as USTA NC, NC Tennis Foundation, other NJTL programs, and the City of Raleigh Parks & Recreation Department to identify qualified junior players who want to advance their abilities and either supplement the support provided by these organizations and/or provide direct support to players and families.
A generous sponsor pledged to match all donations to the Cy King Community Tennis Fund up to $10,000.
