Tournament Beneficiary

Tournament Beneficiary

The Fayez Sarofim & Co. U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championship has designated the National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL) chapter of the Houston Tennis Association (HTA) as the tournament beneficiary.

The National Junior Tennis and Learning program was founded by Arthur Ashe, the 1967 US Clay champion. The NJTL programs are designed to develop the character of children through tennis and education.

The programs actively reach out to youth who may not otherwise have the chance to participate in tennis through free and low-cost opportunities. In addition to teaching tennis skills, the programs seek to encourage the values of humanitarianism, leadership and academic excellence among participants.

In Houston, a partnership between the HTA and the City of Houston Parks & Recreation Department sees more than 6,000 kids participate annually in NJTL programs at 44 different facilities throughout the city. Nationally, NJTL programs are supported by the United States Tennis Association Foundation.


Tennis Stars Give Back

Through the partnership between the U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championship and the HTA, a portion of proceeds from the ATP World Tour event held each April at River Oaks Country Club will be donated to support local NJTL programming. The tournament will also be active in various NJTL events during the year, including the annual Kids Day at Memorial Park.

ATP Tour players and the organizers of the Fayez Sarofim & Co. U.S. Men's Clay Court Championship will visit the Houston Tennis Association's National Junior & Learning clinics during the 2022 tournament. The players and tournament have contributed to resurface parks courts that were damaged or needed upgrades in past years. Watch the full video from their Highland Park visit HERE.

The tournament will support the Memorial Hermann Institute for Nursing Excellence through its ticket resale program. The Nursing Institute ensures world class patient care by supporting innovation and research along with attracting and retaining top nursing talent.

Fans are encouraged to return tickets for any session they cannot attend so they may be resold, with the entire purchase price being donated to the Institute. The program has raised over $285,000 for charity.
