Since its founding in 2012, the JMTP and Sportime have awarded over 200 scholarships to children who live in the communities near Randall’s Island and throughout the city. Those invited to receive a scholarship will attend JMTA’s 34-week fall session, September through May.

A nonprofit affiliated with the John McEnroe Tennis Academy, the Johnny Mac Tennis Project was created by John McEnroe to remove social and economic barriers to tennis participation for NYC kids and to bridge the gap between recreational community-based programs and advanced tennis training.
