Racquets for All
What is Racquets for All?
The mission of the Racquets for All program is to collect, assess, refurbish and distribute tennis racquets, tennis balls and other tennis equipment to individuals and organizations lacking access throughout the state of Colorado.
How does it work?
The Colorado Youth Tennis Foundation established this equipment sharing program to bring the great sport of tennis to anybody desiring to play by collecting used racquets and used balls from tennis players at tennis clubs and other locations. The equipment is distributed to individuals and organizations in Colorado presently lacking access to tennis equipment.
How you can get involved....
Donate your tennis racquet and gently used balls at a nearby collection site.
Coordinate a one-time tennis equipment drive at your school, tournament or other event.
Restring and repair racquets.
Donate storage space for equipment assessment and distribution.
Sponsor the Racquets for All program.
The primary purpose of Racquets for All is to get used equipment to individuals and programs lacking access. Spread the word to those in need.
Racquets for All will make every effort to provide assistance to individuals and non-profit organizations in need of tennis equipment; however, fulfillment of the request is not guaranteed.

The Racquets for All High School Challenge
All high school tennis teams are encouraged to come up with creative ways to gather donations of new and used tennis racquets and ultimately try to collect the most racquets of any high school in the state during the season. The winning girls' team and the winning boys' team will each be recognized and awarded up to $200 at a presentation at the conclusion of the seasons in May and October.
