Our Impact


Years serving the Community

The Fort opened its doors in 2002 and has been actively serving the tennis community in honor of Fred Wells!



Volunteer hours in 2017

Our loyal group of volunteers give generously of their time, working as part of our board, on a committee, or with under-resourced youth in our after-school programs.



TennisWorks Experiences in 2017

TennisWorks, the program at the heart of our mission, will impact youth through the game of tennis by teaching The Fort Five: Safety, Respect, Commitment, Persistence, & Kindness.

Thoughts from Our TennisWorks students

"Tennis is like a family to me and you can make a lot of beautiful friendships with the people around you."
