OUR MISSION

"We strengthen our community by educating and empowering youth to realize their full potential."

“Working for SPUT has been a great opportunity and experience for me to grow as an individual. Warriors gave me a sense of belonging and helped me through a lot of things. I loved the time I got to spend with SPUT.”

-Latrice Jondro, SPUT Coach

"The coaches involved with SPUT are so good. The connections that my kids have made with their coaches are amazing; they are wonderful mentors and I can’t wait to watch these relationships grow."

-Chris Voeller, SPUT Parent

"Being a tennis coach at SPUT was an amazing experience for me. As a coach, I had the opportunity to share my knowledge and passion for the sport with others and helped the students improve their skills and reach their goals. Additionally, being part of the EP program, I had the opportunity to visit colleges with SPUT staff and design SPUT’s tennis coach uniform. I am incredibly grateful to be a part of SPUT."

-Setel Muhammed, SPUT Coach

Our family returns to Saint Paul Urban Tennis year-after-year because SPUT works with ALL Saint Paul youth, has accessible and affordable programming, and offers a curriculum that fosters strength, fortitude, integrity, and fun. Not to mention that SPUT is BIPOC lead and allows many to learn a predominantly white-centered sport. We are so thankful for SPUT.

-Adriana, SPUT Parent

SPUT has had such a significant impact on my life and I can honestly say I wouldn't be where I am today without Saint Paul Urban Tennis.

-Eli Freberg, SPUT Coach

“THIS WAS THE BEST SUMMER EVER!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH.”

-Helen, Outreach Partner

When I was younger, I noticed on mainstream shows and Hollywood movies that the protagonist was never Asian; just like how there are no Asian superheroes in the Avengers… Through SPUT, I can show the world, leaders DO look like me.

-Neng Lee (Frankie), SPUT Coach
