A new and powerful partnership between the United States Tennis Association/Midwest Tennis & Education Foundation (MTEF) and TennisTEC will see that 5% of proceeds from TennisTEC’s tennis simulator will be donated annually to MTEF for the next two years.
The objective of the partnership will be growing tennis and making the sport more accessible for players.
TennisTEC’s mission is to provide a quality tennis simulator for athletes to play, train and analyze their game year-round. The simulator is designed for able-body and wheelchair players. Combine that with MTEF’s focus on educational opportunities for youth and players with disabilities, this new partnership represents special opportunities: 1) to help players reach their highest potential in tennis and education and 2) provide additional brand value to both organizations; each serves as an introductory doorway to each other’s member bases, players and collaborators.
TennisTEC’s tennis simulator is the first of its kind in the country. Similar to a golf simulator, it uses video-capturing software to break down a player’s strokes, serves, and rallies so that players of all skill levels can analyze their game, build endurance and have fun! The best part is that you use your racquet to hit real balls, and you don’t have to pick them up afterward. This is not your father’s ball machine.

The USTA/Midwest Tennis & Education Foundation (MTEF) was founded in 1992 as the charitable arm of the USTA Midwest. MTEF supports 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.
MTEF makes a difference by providing tennis opportunities to diverse youth from many cultural, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. The foundation also awards scholarships and grants, enhancing individuals’ personal growth and bringing tennis to children who might never otherwise experience it. The foundation enhances communities within the USTA Midwest Section and promotes 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. Visit midwesttennisfoundation.com for more information.
