Atlanta Youth Tennis and Education Foundation

The Atlanta Youth Tennis & Education Foundation (AYTEF) is an organization that supports youth tennis and education programs, educates and provides the public information about the lifelong health benefits of tennis, and promotes amateur tennis and good sportsmanship in schools, playgrounds, public parks, and after-school programs.

AYTEF instructs and encourages youth from 5 to 18 years old and of all abilities, including those with disabilities. AYTEF and The Chattahoochee Foundation joined forces with the Atlanta Police Department and the Atlanta Police Athletic League to successfully launch the Volley Against Violence program where children, police officers, and other community volunteers meet together at Washington Park Tennis Center in the Westside of Atlanta on Friday nights for pizza and tennis.
