Through Tennis to Productive Citizenship
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.
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 60,000 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.
The Bollettieri Tennis and Learning leadership is a team of highly experienced professionals in the worlds of tennis, management, and charity. Together, along with our many outside partners, they have designed the world's finest tennis after school program.
The Bollettieri Tennis and Learning instructional staff is comprised of world class coaches that are hand picked by Nick Bollettieri and the BTL leadership team. They will offer guidance and training in tennis, academics, and life skills.
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.
Bollettieri Tennis and Learning's vision began in Southwest Florida and will expand nationwide in the near future. Initially we will be partnering with local school districts.
