$3,000 Goal

We use tennis as the vehicle to teach life, leadership and employment skills--to make an impact on the lives of 2,000+ youth each year.

During this unique season, Saint Paul Urban Tennis needs your support to provide jobs for high school youth and scholarships to enable all kids to participate in our tennis, education, leadership and service programs.  

SPUT provides free or low cost tennis lesson programs for 2,000+ kids each year on 30+ sites in Saint Paul.  Kids also learn through SPUT's Academic Creative Engagement (A.C.E.) Camps that combine tennis with reading, writing and math activities. An added bonus is that youth in our programs learn and practice  SPUT S.P.I.R.I.T.  life skills--service, perseverance, integrity, responsibility, imagination and teamwork.

2018 Warrior Leadership Academy Service Project with Habitat for Humanity 

SPUT high school players from under-resourced communities can join our Warrior Leadership Academy, which combines winter tennis with off court leadership, service and entrepreneurship activities.  SPUT also  employs more than 70 high school and college students as youth tennis coaches, and as program and office assistants at our Eastview Rec Center headquarters. In addition, 16 youth in our Employment PLUS program work in paid jobs at SPUT with time  for college and career exploration and mentoring.  

    Our Mission: To Educate and Empower Youth to Realize their Full Potential

In 2017, SPUT moved its headquarters to Eastview Rec Center in east Saint Paul, where the need is great for youth development programming (both tennis and non-tennis) and youth employment.

Your donation will support SPUT's mission to ensure that no child/youth will ever be turned away from our programs due to a family’s inability to pay. Help us teach kids to be leaders on and off the tennis court. Thank you for considering a contribution for Saint Paul Urban Tennis kids!
