Who We Are
Serve & Return Chicago is run by a volunteer Board of Directors whose primary focus is helping kids in the greater Chicago area through the sport of tennis. We do this through grants and scholarships to support youth tennis programs in underserved communities.
As a separate, non-for-profit, tax-exempt corporation, Serve & Return Chicago is able to accept tax-deductible contributions from generous individuals and organizations. Virtually all of the contributions by our sponsors are re-invested in the youth programs and the scholarships we support.

The mission of Serve and Return Chicago is to positively impact the lives of children in Chicagoland’s under-served communities through the game of tennis. We believe tennis is an inclusive, life-long source of physical, mental, and emotional well-being. The funds we raise support outstanding youth programs that provide equipment, education, instruction and fun competition in safe environments.
