The mission of JTCC’s Community Development programs is to promote overall health and wellness and to encourage personal growth through sportsmanship, competitive spirit, independence, and teamwork, opening doors to future success.

Furthermore, JTCC is a place where anyone regardless of their age, talent or if they suffer from a mental or physical disability has the opportunity to enjoy playing tennis.


JTCC began its underserved neighborhood initiative in 2009 to introduce the sport of tennis to youth ages 5-11 in Prince George’s County, MD, and Washington, DC.

Instructors utilize a unique combination of tennis instruction and education to reach youth who lack the resources to learn the game of tennis.

Since its inception, JTCC has operated its program at 30 sites across the District of Columbia (GEICO Game On! program) and Prince George’s County, MD (Sandy Spring Bank Advantage Prince George’s program). To date, JTCC community outreach programming has reached more than 4,800 youth. 

Game On! and Advantage, Prince George’s players have the opportunity to progress into Phase 2, the first step on the JTCC pathway towards earning a college scholarship.
