"HJTEP has been a part of our family life since our older son, who is now playing college tennis, joined in 2006. The organization, staff and coaches have been an integral part of our kids' upbringing. What my kids have learned at HJTEP is not just about tennis, but about good work ethic, commitment, tenacity, good sportsmanship, the necessity for diversity and inclusiveness, empowerment, being part of a team and much more. Even after our youngest son goes off to college next year, HJTEP will always be a part of all of our lives."

— Debbie Taylor-Kerman
