Tenacity serves over 5,000 Boston youth each summer in our Summer Tennis & Reading Program (STRP) held at over 30 public parks across the city. This dynamic free program is offered on summer weekday mornings and afternoons for city youth ages 6 –10 and 11 – 16. Each age group meets for a three-hour session where time is split between fitness and summer reading activities. In partnership with the city of Boston, Tenacity's STRP provides an enriching learning environment for Boston students, which keeps their minds and bodies active during the summer recess.

If you are hoping to enroll in these sites, we encourage you to consider signing up for the George Wright location in Hyde Park. If you would like to be put on the wait list, please email your name, your child's name, and the site and dates you would like to attend - you can send your email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Should there be any openings, we will contact you.
Note: if you have registered online before, and do not remember your password, you will need to remember your username exactly as you created it, and have access to the email address you provided when you first registered, in order for the password retrieval auto-generator to work. Due to the high volume of calls we receive, Tenacity staff will be unable to assist with password retrieval. If you are having any issues accessing your old account, it is strongly recommended that you simply create a new account..
