WHO WE ARE
WHO WE ARE
Founded in the 1930s, Dallas Tennis (known as the Dallas Tennis Association) has always understood the need for, and importance of, including, a philanthropic mission to our organization. Tennis provides extraordinary health benefits, community, friendship, and a recreational sport that improves both physical and mental acuity through competition. But it doesn’t stop there.
Today, thanks to the generosity of thousands of United States Tennis Association (USTA) players, donors, volunteers, the USTA Tennis Foundation and our entire Dallas Tennis community, the Education Academy of Dallas Tennis (DTEA) reaches more than 1,000 underserved, at-risk children of all ages and abilities each year. The DTEA supports numerous National Junior Tennis and Learning initiatives. We are an introduction to tennis. But more than that, we are a loving, encouraging, supportive initiative to underserved youth that says, “You are important. You are worthy. You can excel.”
