NJTL of Indianapolis
NJTL of Indianapolis is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that offers tennis and education programs for children 5 and up, and for teenagers up to 18 years old.
Our mission: NJTL of Indianapolis follows the example set by Arthur Ashe to promote education, good character and healthy lifestyles to children through the sport of tennis.
This past year, the NJTL did a great job providing low-cost tennis instruction at Garfield Park and numerous other parks, as they help children who have never played tennis before. Further, they have worked to enrich lives through tennis by focusing on teamwork, working well with others, believing in yourself, and having goals.
-Mark Bowell, Friends of Garfield Park, Inc.
NJTL Indianapolis is important to us, for providing tennis instruction that blends so well with our curriculum, while having a very strong standalone component. The Forever-Fit Camp is looking forward to continued collaboration with NJTL Indianapolis in 2020 and beyond, working with campers to lose weight, gain self-esteem, and learn tennis skills. Camper surveys consistently rank NJTL Indy tennis as a favorite activity.
-Elizabeth A. Ryan, Forever-Fit Camp
In the last year NJTL has helped increase test scores, grades, self-confidence, and athletic abilities for more than 20 students in the after-school program. The NJTL has proven that two-way interactions between community members and schools enrich and strengthen the impact of successful relationships with at-risk youth.
