In 2006, the YTF, through Board Member Bob Jagger, awarded $1,000 to a grass-roots program headed by Robert Sweat at the city of Jacksonville’s Riverside Tennis Park. Sweat has free children’s clinics several days a week at the public park.
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.
