Summer Tennis & Reading Program – Boston

Each summer during July and August, Tenacity serves nearly 5,000 Boston youth ages 6-16 through our Summer Tennis & Reading Program (STRP) held at 23 public parks across the city. This dynamic program is offered free-of-charge on summer weekday mornings and afternoons.

Each age group meets for a three-hour session where time is split between tennis/fitness and summer reading activities. Offered in partnership with the City of Boston, Tenacity’s STRP provides an enriching learning environment for city youth, keeping minds and bodies active during the summer recess.


Due to the impact of COVID-19, the Summer Tennis & Reading Program has delayed its registration opening until April 29th at 10am.

Note: if you have registered online before, but do not remember your username or password, you will need to create a new account.  Due to the high volume of calls we receive, Tenacity staff will be unable to assist with password retrieval.
