About MTEF

Founded in 1992 as the charitable arm of the USTA/Midwest Section, the USTA/Midwest Tennis & Education Foundation (formerly Midwest Youth Tennis & Education Foundation) has been supporting communities, programs and individuals to provide greater educational opportunities for youth. The Foundation places emphasis on programs and activities that provide youth with a positive, fun and disciplined environment to learn the game of tennis - and create alternatives to negative recreation. It also assists young players who have demonstrated talent, and are in need of financial support to compete at higher levels.

We make a difference by providing tennis opportunities to diverse youth from many cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds. We also award scholarships and grants, in doing so, USTA/MTEF enhances individuals’ personal growth, brings tennis to children who might never otherwise experience it.  We enhance communities within the USTA/Midwest Section, and promote the sport of tennis as an enjoyable, lifetime sport that contributes to good health, leadership, education, discipline, and self-esteem. In 2017, MTEF expanded to include specific adult populations including Adaptive Tennis, Wheelchair Tennis, and Wounded Warriors.
