The idea of supporting court tennis in the United States with tax-deductible contributions began long before the formation of the USCTPF. Bill Clothier and Alistair Martin, two of the great players and leaders of the game, raised a substantial amount of donations throughout the 1980s and 90s for a fund held at the International Tennis Hall of Fame. After the establishment of the Foundation in 1994, and the subsequent tax-exempt designation in 1995, the funds held at the Hall of Fame were redirected to the USCTPF.
Due to the foresight of these leaders, and the ongoing dedication of the court tennis community, the USCTPF has successfully supported the players, places and future of court tennis for more than two decades.
Accomplishments in which the Foundation has played a significant role include:
Georgian Court University
A long term program for the USCTPF has been working to bring the tennis court at Georgian Court University back into operation on campus and within the broader U.S. court tennis community.
Real Tennis Online
The purchase of Real Tennis Online (RTO) in conjunction with the four international governing bodies for court tennis created the global standard for recording handicaps and bolsters our playing community.
