The activities of the Eastern Tennis Hall of Fame support the Junior Tennis Foundation (JTF.)

JTF was incorporated in 1979 as a non-profit organization to raise funds for junior tennis and for tennis special populations within the Eastern Section. The volunteer Board of Directors includes tennis dignitaries and patrons that love the game and support making it available to all. Eight volunteers have served as president.

Over one million dollars has been given in grants to worthy programs and in scholarships to junior players since the inception of the foundation.

Our current leadership:

Bob Garry, President

Dorris S. Herrick, Executive Director
