Junior Tennis Champions Center was founded in 1999 by Ken Brody, a lifelong tennis enthusiast, in College Park, MD. It was established on an area of 15 acres of Maryland parkland adjacent to the main campus of the University of Maryland.


Junior Tennis Champions Center (JTCC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to transforming lives through tennis. It offers a comprehensive pathway for all ages and abilities, serving Washington, DC, Montgomery County, MD, and Prince George’s County, MD. Our mission is to grow the game of tennis and create a lifetime sport for everyone.

JTCC was selected by the United States Tennis Association (USTA) as the first Regional Training Center for its high performance program.

To ensure participation by players requiring financial assistance, JTCC supporters provided more than $800,000 in need-based and merit-based grants in 2016.

JTCC provides a pathway for talented and highly motivated young individuals to follow their aspirations at top colleges and universities nationwide. Every student who has graduated from JTCC’s Champions program has earned a scholarship to a Division I program, a facilitated acceptance at a Division III, acceptance to an Ivy League school, or continued on to play professional tennis.
