Established in 1962, the Youth Tennis Foundation of Florida Inc. is a nonprofit organization that offers support for the development of youth tennis in Florida. Our primary goal is to introduce children to the many benefits of tennis, and, among other things, we provide scholarships, grants and awards to deserving players, coaches and tennis facilities.
The YTF is a qualified 501 (c) (3) organization and all donations are tax deductible. We strive to find ways to better the game of tennis in the state and welcome your suggestions and your requests. We are particularly interested in novel programs, such as a rural initiative, to reach out and find those niches which are not currently being serviced by the Florida Tennis Association’s various programs.
The YTF is an independent organization which presently consists of a Board of Directors with diversified and varied backgrounds who come from all over the State of Florida to represent each of the 8 USTA Florida Regions. We are actively looking to add creative, dynamic and energetic people to our group.

We Could Use Your Help
We have sponsored tournaments that have involved thousands of children from across the state, and we help the youth get involved and experience all the benefits of being involved in tennis. We start programs in areas where tennis is not typically available and provide scholarhips to deserving children. We also provide equipment and support to tennis facilities around the state.
Currently, we are seeking donations that will allow us to expand our activities and provide more services to more children. Over the years, Youth Tennis Foundation of Florida Inc. has helped tens of thousands of children enrich their lives by playing tennis.
The YTF is a qualified 501(c)(3) organization and all donations are tax deductible. Consult your tax advisor for details in connection with this tax deduction relative to your individual situation. Copies of the YTF corporate and federal non-profit and tax-exempt papers can be provided upon request.

The Youth Tennis Foundation (YTF) was created in 1962 by several tennis enthusiasts who wished to create a patrons organization.
Until recently, the YTF was the only state-wide patrons group in the State of Florida. Due to a recent bequest from a tennis enthusiast, the YTF looks forward to continuing its quest to promote and nourish youth tennis programs in the state of Florida.
