Tennis Ohio — serving others
The mission of Tennis Ohio is create a space where individuals, groups and tennis interact and engage with each other to improve the quality of our greater tennis community. Tennis is the only youth sport where participants compete as individuals and are prohibited from receiving any coaching during competition, placing an unnecessary emotional burden on young kids. At Tennis Ohio, we believe that the current structure of junior tennis events isolate and remove joy for the kids, and subsequently undermines the intention of their families. Tennis Ohio events will strive to connect the kids in a team format with a dedicated coach for each team, resulting in more interactive and fun competitions.
Tennis Ohio programming will expand to include meaningful pathways for community engagement around tennis, working with local partners such as Buddy Up Tennis, creating opportunities and resources for Columbus youth to learn and growth through tennis.
