John Van Ryn Scholarship

The YTF presents each year a scholarship to a deserving person who in some way demonstrates an extraordinary commitment to youth tennis in the State of Florida. The scholarship is named after one of the organization’s most generous and significant benefactors, John Van Ryn.

NOTE: Deadline this year was May 1st.  Please check back later if you would like to submit your application for the John Van Ryn Scholarship.

Mr. Van Ryn, who passed away in 1999 in West Palm Beach, Florida, had a remarkable tennis career in the 1920’s and 1930’s. His 24 doubles matches and 22 wins are highs in U.S. Davis Cup history. He also won multiple U.S., French and Wimbledon doubles championships and was consistently ranked in the U.S. top ten for his singles play.

In 1963, Mr. Van Ryn was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame. We are most grateful for Mr. Van Ryn’s dedication and enthusiasm for youth tennis and honored that he entrusted the YTF to continue his legacy.
