Fostering a lifelong love of tennis and learning
RodneyStreet is a 501(c)3 organization that provides year-round opportunities for Wilmington area youth on and off the tennis court. RodneyStreet combines athletics, academics, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) programming, field trips and character-building activities.
After School Programs - Offered three days a week after school and include one day of weekend match-play per week. This program time is split evenly between on-court tennis instruction and our hands-on academic component, "S.T.E.A.M."
Summer Tennis & Enrichment Program - Our eight-week, full-day summer camp with weekly field trips included. Tennis skills are refined in the mornings, and the afternoons are spent creating and learning in the classroom.
In-School Programming, "Play-Weeks" - Our way of bringing tennis to an already familiar school environment. This past year, we brought tennis to over a dozen P.E. classes of school partners in greater Wilmington. RodneyStreet reaches an average of 2,500 kids each year through out school outreach!
