Welcome to

"The summer of my sophomore year of high school, I worked at XS Tennis. It was at XS where I picked up a tennis racket for the first time. Whenever there was an open court, I played. When I wasn't working my job or studying for school, I was working on my game. XS became my second home, and the coaches my mentors. Two years later, I received a full tennis scholarship to college."

- Osiris Carroll
Freshman, Prairie State College

"As a kid, I grew up playing tennis on Chicago's South Side. I dreamed big and worked hard to become a world-class athlete. XS is more than just a place to play tennis. It's the only facility accessible to inner city kids in need of confidence, mentorship and community support. This year, at age 18, I made it to the third round of the French Open. While working to reach my full potential, it's also important for me to reach back and ensure that similar opportunities to play, train and develop are available for the next generation."

- Taylor Townsend
Professional Tennis Player, Ranked #148 in World
