Mission

NexGen Tennis Academy recognizes that the youth in our community have many paths to success and understands the importance of building a strong foundation that supports social and personal development and health throughout life.  However, we also recognize that there are also many obstacles along the path that can derail their journey and block them from achieving success.

We are committed to provide the youth with an opportunity to participate in programs that will teach them how to be successful leaders and reach their full potential in life.  We will provide an enabling environment that allows them to believe in themselves and their goals.

Through our programs we will educate our youth and create a movement in the community that supports total engagement in sporting activities, health and fitness and to fight against obesity and unhealthy lifestyle.

Tennis is the ideal sport for education and youth development.

  • Tennis and educational after-school programs support the core mission of schools by increasing kids’ attachment to school, improving attendance, and thereby helping to improve academic performance.
  • Tennis builds discipline, confidence and independent thinking. 
  • Tennis teaches responsibility, respect and a strong work ethic.
