Welcome to the
Love & Love Tennis Foundation
We are thrilled to be able to share our goals and vision with all of you who enjoy playing Tennis or just spectating. When we started the Love & Love Tennis Foundation in 2015, Tory Fretz and I wanted to find a way to give back to our sport and to our community, especially to the kids here in the valley. Tennis has been a way of life for both Tory and I and it has given us many wonderful years of traveling and competing all over the world. Even now in the twilight of our lives tennis is still the focus that drives us to set and achieve goals. We would like to share with you the many good things that tennis has given us by getting kids to learn to play tennis.
As a new-comer the Love & Love Tennis Foundation has established itself as a “shaker and mover” in the Coachella Valley. We have worked with the National Junior Tennis League, The Boys & Girls Club, Coachella Valley Housing Coalition, A.S.E.S. (after school tennis program), Andy Scorteanu and Rattlesnake Tennis Academy in promoting the growth of youth tennis in the desert. We are making an impact and helping kids regardless of their ethnic or economic background by developing new tennis programs to service their communities. This year we have launched the free KIDS LOVE TENNIS CLINICS at the Monterey C.C. in Palm Desert for kids 3-10 years old. It will run through December of 2017 and start again in 2018. We are currently working with the Boys & Girls Club and the CVHC to bring tennis to the East Valley Communities. The KIDS LOVE TENNIS CLINIC is sponsored by tennis icon Billie Jean King, Barbara & Gary Tolman, ASTA, USTA and the Love & Love Tennis Foundation.
Our goal is to establish these free tennis clinics through-out the Coachella Valley, grow youth tennis and give girls and boys a chance to learn and play tennis, “A Game For A Lifetime”.
The Love & Love Tennis Foundation has raised approximately $100,000 in the past 3 years and has given more than half back to the various organizations and programs mentioned. We would like to continue to grow our foundation and its’ youth tennis programs and hope you will donate so we can enable all kids who desire to play tennis to do so.
Our goal is to provide Free Tennis Clinics through-out the Coachella Valley through our foundation and the “KIDS LOVE TENNIS CLINIC” PROGRAM.
