The Doug Philpott Inner City Children's Tennis Program exists to promote health, physical and moral well-being among needy or disadvantaged inner city children by providing skills development programs. Philpott children learn more than tennis – they learn important lessons about discipline, cooperation, physical fitness and self-confidence.
About DOUG PHILPOTT INNER-CITY CHILDREN'S TENNIS FUND
Our summer tennis camps are offered free-of-charge to Toronto children and youth, ages 5-15, who would otherwise not have access to such activities. We hire 40 qualified instructors to teach tennis at each of our 19 summer camps, which are located across Toronto, including downtown, Scarborough, Etobicoke and Jane & Finch. Our partnership with the Toronto Sports Leadership program offers youth the opportunity to volunteer at our camps, preparing them for Tennis Canada certification and then future paid employment as instructors and assistant instructors.
