SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY
BASED ORGANIZATION PARTNERS
Unlike some other community tennis programs, JMTP is committed to offering the young students in our under-resourced communities the same low-ratio, high-quality learning experiences that JMTA’s paying students receive. Believing in consistent and individualized coach and student interation, JMTP community programs utilize a 6:1 student to teacher ratio, while the New York City public school average is 34:1. To date, JMTP has provided over 17,000 hours of free group tennis instruction, valued at more than $1.1M, plus free tennis lessons for community children participating in the Randall’s Island Park Alliance summer camp.
“I like the coaches and the teams we go with. Tennis is fun because the balls are easy to throw and they have small rackets for kids. Thank you for helping me play tennis.”

"The tennis instructors are very enthusiastic when teaching the students. The activities are well planned and organized. The instructors show an interest not only in the students' tennis instruction but also their emotional needs. The students have a great time and look forward to coming here on Fridays. For most of the students this is their only exposure to this type of activity and organized play. Thank you for giving them this opportunity."
