Our Mission

The mission of the Friends of Tewksbury Tennis, Inc. is to act as a Booster Club to support the game of tennis in the Tewksbury community for youths 18 years or younger. FTT is a 501c3 non-profit corporation.

How We Started

In 2010, a small, dedicated group of Tewksbury residents had a vision of forming a group to support the high school tennis program, promote a love of tennis, and investigate the construction of more tennis courts in the town of Tewksbury.

 

The group met, pursued it’s goals, and eventually created by-laws and successfully filed for 501(c)(3) non-profit status. Our group has grown, and with the completion of five courts at Tewksbury Memorial High School, we are moving ahead to continue to enhance the local tennis offerings.

FTT has accomplished many of our goals, yet still strive to do more and continue to set new goals.

Past Accomplishments and Present Activites
