ISA Announces New JustCause Partnership with Youth Tennis San Diego

Ian Symmonds & Associates Inc is excited to announce a new partnership with Youth Tennis San Diego. This relationship will be the focal point and centerpiece of our ongoing #JustCause campaign. Our work with Youth Tennis San Diego will commence in January.

Youth Tennis San Diego is a nonprofit (501)(c)(3) organization whose purpose is to promote the educational, physical, and social development of all youth through organized tennis and educational activities. Their community programs encourage youth participation, personal integrity, leadership, and competitive spirit in a friendly environment that builds responsible citizens.

As a community service, YTSD provides thousands of youngsters each year the opportunity to play tennis after school at their neighborhood school. After School Tennis provides a safe haven for hundreds of youngsters who are not supervised after school. Through tennis the children are learning the success skills which will give them the confidence and self-esteem needed to confront the negative influences so often found on the streets where they live.

Several times a year, the children travel to the Barnes Tennis Center to participate in special tennis events. This is often their first exposure to a “real” tennis court. Other programs include recreational opportunities, local and national competitive events, educational seminars, kids helping kids projects, and partnership programs with local school districts and youth organizations. YTSD also supports wheelchair and special populations by providing free court usage.
