The Bollettieri Tennis and Learning Program will collaborate with a variety of local and national organizations that will bring specialized skills in the area of childhood development. With continuing support of our partners, all BTL programs are offered at no cost to the children, their families, their schools or youth centers.
Scholarships with USF
Bollettieri Tennis and Learning and University of South Florida have entered into a partnership to ensure our students have a clear path to college.
USF has agreed to cover the cost of tuition not covered by other scholarships.
Nick Bollettieri is no newcomer to urban tennis programs. Nick cofounded the wildly successful Ashe/Bollettieri “Cities” Tennis Program with tennis legend Arthur Ashe. One of those programs (15-Love) taught more than 80,000 inner city youngsters to play tennis, stay in school and become good citizens. In fact, 15-Love, in Albany, New York, will celebrated its 30th birthday in 2019. Nick realizes that the skills learned through tennis foster independent thinking, self-discipline, good manners and a healthy lifestyle.
Bollettieri Tennis and Learning, in collaboration with The Panda Foundation, has built a program to help at risk youth. Our year round program employs the most qualified coaches to guide and mentor the children. The BTL program will also involve academic tutoring, life skills coaching, and fitness training.
