Sportsmen's mission is to build leaders on the court, in the classroom and in the greater community by providing academic, wellness and social development programs alongside recreational and competitive tennis instruction for youth and adults. Sportsmen’s is committed to improving life opportunities for youth in Boston’s Blue Hill Corridor while welcoming a diverse community from the Greater Boston area.
In 1961, a small group of friends shared a deep commitment to their struggling community and a belief in the STEC transformative power of tennis. They recognized that by focusing on the well-being of youth, they could improve the health of the entire community. These beliefs led them to establish Sportsmen’s Tennis Club (now Sportsmen’s Tennis & Enrichment Center, STEC), the first indoor non-profit tennis club built by and for the African American community. They knew that quality tennis instruction and interaction with caring adults could develop well-rounded young citizens, and, through tennis, STEC began to identify and fill gaps that weaken youth, families and community.
