The Johnny Mac Tennis Project (JMTP) changes young lives by removing the racial, economic and social barriers to success through tennis. A 501(c)(3) nonprofit, JMTP introduces tennis to thousands of under-resourced New York City area children, particularly those living in East Harlem and the South Bronx, two communities immediately adjacent to our base at Sportime Randall’s Island.

 

Believing that the future of American tennis depends on its diversity, we support future generations of American players at every level. JMTP kids are first introduced to tennis as a life-long health, fitness and social activity. For our most dedicated young athletes, JMTP provides a pathway to success through competitive tennis, leading to college scholarships, careers in the industry, and, for a few, professional tennis careers and, perhaps, Grand Slam titles.

Our supporters, including Sportime, private donors, corporate sponsors and tennis enthusiasts, all share an interest in promoting tennis to New York City area youth, because tennis’ emphasis on physical and mental health can profoundly impact players’ aspirations and opportunities.
