Notes from the nonprofit

The mission of the Dallas Tennis Association (DTA) is to provide opportunities to improve the mental and physical well-being of the community through education and the sport of tennis. Our vision is to build sustainable programs and facilities that provide access to education and tennis for all people in the Greater Dallas community, now and for future generations. The philanthropic arm of the DTA is the Dallas Tennis and Education Academy (DTEA), a chapter of the USTA National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL) program. DTEA provides children with tutoring, tennis instruction, life skills training and tennis equipment. Programs include free after school tennis and education classes at 10 schools in the Dallas area, beginning tennis instruction each Saturday at multiple parks around the city, with year-round classes at Kiest Park, summer NJTL classes, and year-round free or low-cost advanced tennis and education assistance for those who are looking to earn college scholarships.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We aim to provide tennis education and equipment, tutoring, and life skills training to at-risk, under-resourced children in the Dallas Metropolitan area to anyone who wants it. No child left behind -- all inclusive.

Fundraising efforts.
Community awareness -- through social media, contacting local government and public and private facilities.
Provide more programs in schools in diverse locations and to special needs children.

We have set short-term and long-term goals for fundraising and are putting staff in place to accomplish those goals.
We have a very strong board of directors that helps with these things.

Community awareness has increased and so have funds.
