The USTA/Midwest Tennis & Education Foundation (formerly Midwest Youth Tennis & Education Foundation) took shape in 1992 under the Section leadership at the time which saw a great opportunity to make an impact in player development and help top-level juniors throughout the Midwest.  Thirty-five 'Charter Champions' made a donation to the Midwest Youth Tennis & Education Foundation to get it started, and we thank these individuals for their commitment.
