(Billings field, Roxbury Latin, and some sessions for Rogers Park and George Wright are currently at capacity. You can add your child to the wait list for these sessions on the site selection page of our registration website. Please note that you can sign up for another site in addition to adding yourself to a waitlist. Because the wait lists for some sites are starting to get crowded, we recommend choosing a site that is not yet full in addition to adding your child to a wait list, to make sure your child is ultimately able to participate in the program in some capacity this summer.)
Tenacity serves nearly 5,000 Boston youth each summer in our Summer Tennis & Reading Program (STRP) held at 24 public parks across the city. This dynamic free program is offered on summer weekday mornings and afternoons for city youth ages 6 –10 and 9 – 16. Each age group meets for a three-hour session where time is split between tennis/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.
Registration will begin Tuesday, April 14th at 9:00 a.m.
Registration will remain open through the duration of the program.
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.
