This Giving Tuesday, choose to support Down The Line and Beyond as we continue to serve up dreams through tennis and education for children in the Philadelphia area during these unprecedented times. Working with our partners at the City of Philadelphia, USTA Middle States, USTA Foundation, TD Bank Charitable Foundation, Bodine High School and Philadelphia Parks and Recreation we work tirelessly to positively impact lives through tennis. Please help us by donating here.

“Our mission is to facilitate positive character and education development for Philadelphia area youth through the sport of tennis, in order to maximize each child’s full potential on and off the court and promote a community around the sport.” 

Down the Line and Beyond (DTLB) is a United States Tennis Organization (USTA) affiliated National Junior Tennis League (NJTL) 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation that organizes free tennis, education and character development programs for 1000 children in underserved parks and communities within the city of Philadelphia.  

DTLB, with the assistance of CITRS, an organization that structures and implements effective character education and development, has built a curriculum for its programs that fosters integrity, self-control, justice, fortitude, positive attitude, humility, respect and good sportsmanship.  The character development curriculum is an essential element of every Down the Line and Beyond activity.
