Summer of Love
Welcome to Outside the Ball’s Summer of Love!
Tennis has made a positive impact on everyone here at Outside the Ball and has touched the lives of so many. This summer, we want to give back to the sport by shining a light on charities that use tennis to make a difference. From Wimbledon through the US Open, clickable donation cards will be embedded within our #TennisTuesday videos on YouTube and OutsidetheBall.com, making it easy to support these incredible organizations.
The USTA Foundation is dedicated to combining the excitement of tennis with the importance of education to inspire people throughout the United States. With a focus on under-resourced youth, their National Junior Tennis and Learning program provides tennis and educational opportunities to more than 225,000 children. The Foundation and its nationwide programs have improved the lives of people from all ages through sport, education and health.
Britain’s leading tennis charity is The Tennis Foundation which ensures that everyone regardless of their age, shape or ability can play tennis. By bringing tennis into a wide range of schools and neighborhoods, their mission is to make the sport as diverse and inclusive as possible. With their SERVES initiative, The Tennis Foundation uses the sport to educate and encourage young people that live in disadvantaged communities or live in areas where tennis is not easily accessible.

Each of the tennis organizations we are featuring this summer use tennis to empower and improve lives. We hope you will join us in sharing the love with our Summer of Love initiative! From the bottom of our heart, we thank you for your generosity.
