Serve & Return Chicago was originally incorporated as the Chicago Tennis Patrons on September 26, 1947, and received 501(c)(3) charitable status in May of 1950.
Since its inception, the Chicago Tennis Patrons and now Serve & Return Chicago Board of Directors has been comprised of all volunteers whose primary mission is to solicit funding through various fundraising efforts and distribute the funds throughout the Chicagoland area to support and maintain junior education and tennis programs.
Serve & Return Chicago places a very special emphasis on entry level and grass roots tennis programs for junior players who are at risk and in underserved areas.
