Sportsmen’s Tennis & Enrichment Center (Sportsmen’s) is a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to build leaders on the court, in the classroom and in the greater community by providing academic, wellness and social development programs alongside recreational and competitive tennis instruction for youth and adults. Sportsmen’s is committed to improving life opportunities for youth in Boston’s Blue Hill Corridor while welcoming a diverse community from the Greater Boston area. We train, educate and provide competitive and community tennis programs for over 5,000 young people annually, of all races, ethnicities and socio-economic backgrounds, and we offer adult leagues and lessons, recreational tennis and competitive tournament play. Our Youth Tennis programs serve K-12 youth during and after school, and in weekend lessons, summer and vacation camps. To learn more about Sportsmen’s, see www.sportsmenstennis.org.
Our facility, which hosts 14 tennis courts, 5 classrooms, a fitness center, and a clubhouse with showers and lockers, is located on 4 acres near the Dorchester/Mattapan line. Sportsmen’s provides and leverages high quality tennis, academic and social programs to engage with youth, improve their academic outcomes, and open doors of opportunity for college and beyond. Founded in 1961, we were the first non-profit tennis club in the United States formed by and for the African-American community. We maintain a focus on equity and access while welcoming individuals from all walks of life, and we continue to be a leader and innovator in transforming our challenged and under-resourced community.
