EXPAND YOUTH TENNIS PROGRAMMING
We seek to inspire the next generation of tennis fans and future champions through building and supporting more youth tennis programming in Newport and abroad. Our ultimate goal is to develop a thriving Museum and Education Program, which will utilize tennis as a tool for teaching life skills such as honesty, goal-setting, and healthy living to underserved youth.

PROMOTE TENNIS HISTORY
While we remain steadfast in our efforts to preserve tennis history, preservation alone is not enough. We are committed to also promoting the sport’s rich history in innovative and cutting-edge projects including an extensive digitization of the museum collection, traveling museum exhibits, and oral history programs featuring the legends of the sport.

BUILD IMPACTFUL PARTNERSHIPS
We are committed to deepening our relationships with the professional tennis tours, the Grand Slams, our Hall of Famers, and many other leaders in the sport, so that we can collectively grow the sport globally. We intend to further our support of the philanthropic activities of our Hall of Famers and to work with our tennis partners around the world to foster youth tennis development.
