Helping children and adults with special needs get active in a safe sports environment - for FREE
The Tennis for PALS charity tournament was a huge success with almost 40 participants, and additional corporate donors and sponsors. Huge thank you to Legacy YTE, Lifetime Fitness, and to USTA Middle States for helping to sponsor!
Below is recent coverage of our efforts - read and learn more about our mission!
Germantown Academy and Haverford are the main team sponsors within InterAC, but we are looking to add more InterAC team sponsors to spread MLTA across the entire InterAC geography.
Special thanks to the St. Joseph's Prep, which is looking to bring the MLTA mission to the Philadelphia Catholic League next spring!
Indoor court space is limited as the weather get colder, so we operate on a weather permitting basis only on warmer weekends from November through early March, when things begin to warm up again.
Now is a great time though to spread the word and start planning for our spring charity tournaments. We are looking for volunteers! Email email@example.com for details.
To support MLTA, we are now accepting donations electronically via Venmo:
You can still send check, payable to:

Joaquin Arias and Jay Crowther and their volunteers want to share their love of sport and tennis with the people of all ages with special needs, especially during these times when finding safe, active sports programs can be challenging.
We provide a fun learning environment for children who want to explore the sport - for FREE.
The MLTA Team provides fun lessons and structured clinics for people of all ages who want to learn and want to know that their support is going to a good cause. All profits go to support local community efforts focused on special needs children.
Fees are $20 for children and $25 for adults who want to learn and contribute to the cause
Lessons are always FREE for special needs participants.
MLTA runs fundraiser tournaments with food and prize money to help raise funds for other charities that serve special needs kids.
Watch the website for upcoming tournaments that we host throughout the year.
Fun and for a good cause! Our tournaments are a great time and a great way to support the community.
