JTCC named USTA NJTL of the year

JTCC was recognized on April 14 as the National Junior Tennis & Learning (NJTL) Chapter of the Year during the United States Tennis Association (USTA) Annual Conference in Orlando, FL.

For its work specifically with under-served youth, JTCC was selected from among more than 250 NJTL chapters nationwide as the NJTL of the Year for positively impacting youth through the powerful combination of tennis and education.

“JTCC is honored to receive the NJTL of the Year Award and I’m pleased to be living Arthur Ashe’s dream and implementing his vision of providing access to tennis in underserved communities,” said JTCC CEO Ray Benton, who served as National Executive Director of the NJTL and worked alongside Ashe. “My life has come full circle from being the first National Executive Director for the NJTL to [alumnus] Frances Tiafoe receiving the Arthur Ashe Humanitarian Award in 2020, and now JTCC being named NJTL Chapter of the Year. It’s a real win for deserving children.”

Today, supported by the USTA Foundation through financial grants, scholarship opportunities, curricula, technical assistance, and training, NJTL chapters form a network of nonprofit youth development organizations nationwide serving more than 150,000 youth providing free or low-cost tennis and education programming.
