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 2018

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 2018

TennisWorks removes barriers to participation by providing free tennis and life skills programming for youth from under-resourced backgrounds. At the foundation is a focus on our Fort Five core values of Safety, Respect, Commitment, Integrity, & Kindness.

THE SPIRIT OF TennisWorks was captured best by one of our students,

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