Arthur Ashe co-founded the National Junior Tennis League (NJTL) in 1969 with Charlie Pasarell and Sheridan Snyder. Their vision was to “use tennis as a way to gain and hold the attention of young people…so that we can teach them about matters more important than tennis…Through tennis, lives can be changed and spirits reclaimed.”

During the summer of 1969, Indianapolis resident and tennis patron,  Barbara S. Wynne, started an inner-city tennis program at Riverside Park for Indianapolis youth. Four years later, the “Riverside Upswing” program became the Indianapolis chapter of NJTL. NJTL of Indianapolis strives to teach children Ashe’s ideals and the impact he made on the world so that they may carry on his legacy.
