Lenny Simpson Tennis and Education Fund
To provide a year round program to at-risk youth that provides Tennis instruction and academic support in an environment that builds self-esteem, character and life skills, regardless of socio-economic background, color or creed. To promote tennis as an alternative to negative recreation and create an atmosphere that values respect, honesty, sportsmanship, discipline, education and success. The program will focus initially on the Greater Wilmington, NC area.
The Lenny Simpson Tennis and Education Fund has plans underway to form a Junior Development Team with 30 of the most promising young tennis players in the area. In addition to expanding the academic component of the regular One Love Program, we will also develop an Academy of Academic Excellence to tutor these 30 young athletes in the three R’s and in practical subjects such as budgeting, banking, and fiscal responsibility. We’re seeking sponsors for this program too.
We hope that with the integrity of our mission and the successes so far of One Love Tennis programs, people like you will see the difference that we are making in the community and consider sponsoring us in a significant way.
