For over 25 years CHAD Tennis has been engaging the young people of Charlestown with the purpose of involving them in healthy and constructive activities. CHAD Tennis is for all levels of ability and backgrounds. CHAD Tennis' mission is to engage young people of all ability levels in activities that promote a healthy lifestyle while also providing the support necessary to help them achieve their goals both on and off the court.
CHAD Tennis provides free programming to the schools and community centers in Charlestown by offering tennis as an additional activity in their physical education programs, after school programs and vacation and summer camp programs.
In an effort to continue the valuable programming that CHAD Tennis has provided for more than twenty-five years, we are asking the members of the STC and Charlestown community to kindly make a tax-deductible* donation to the Friends of the Mel Stillman Community Tennis Center in order to assist in the reopening in the Spring. We are confident that the best years of tennis at Stillman are ahead of us!
The Friends of the MSCTC is a non-profit formed in January 2018. The Friends of the MSCTC are managing the Stillman Tennis Center and CHAD Tennis program that was formerly managed by CHAD, Inc. Our goal is to work with the City of Boston to createa a public/private partnership. Once this is established we will raise funds to build a new permanent year-round tennis center at the present location.
