Write Your Way To NYC!

Raleigh Tennis Association is hosting an NJTL Essay Contest.  The contest is open to all 10U, 14U and 18U players living in the Raleigh area.  All entries submitted for the local contest will be forwarded to the USTA Foundation for national judging as well. National essay winners will be guests at the 2018 Kids’ Day at the US Open..


The National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL) network is a nationwide network of community tennis organizations seeking to develop the character of young people through tennis and education. NJTLs are unique because they offer a variety of on-court programming and also educational and life skill components designed to enhance a child’s overall development.

Founded in 1969, this growing network of tennis providers share similar values, ideals and goals by reaching out to those who may not otherwise have the opportunity to play tennis, instilling in  youngsters the values of leadership and academic excellence, and by giving all kids the opportunity to fully develop their tennis skills so they can derive a lifetime of enjoyment from the sport.


The NJTL Essay Contest is a widely acclaimed educational tool.  NJTL participants are asked to write essays answering a thought provoking question requiring research and analysis.  Over 2500 entries are recieved each year and 10 national winners (one boy and one girl from each age group) receive an all-expense paid trip to New York City to participate in Arthur Ashe Kids' Day at the US Open and to accept their awards at the NJTL Essay Awards Luncheon.  It's a once in a lifetime experience and we are always amazed at the thoughtfulness of each and every student.
