Saint Paul Urban Tennis needs funding to keep our tennis and education programming free and low-cost for all Saint Paul families. With costs for youth sports rising and income inequality at an all-time high, now more than ever, we must create safe and fun spaces for low-income and historically excluded youth to flourish and have a sense of belonging.
SPUT’s approach to youth sports is simple: We strive to make our tennis and educational programs available and accessible to all by providing scholarships and financial assistance to any family looking to participate. Additionally, funds donated to SPUT make it possible for us to employ and equip 70+ high school youth each year with career experience. Many youth — particularly girls, LGBTQ+ youth, youth of color, youth living in low-income communities, and youth with disabilities — face additional barriers to accessing quality sports opportunities. By making our programs free and low-cost, we make them accessible to all. SPUT’s goal is to raise $3,000 by November 17, 2022. Please help us ensure we are able to provide our valuable programming for generations to come!
