From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life.
―Arthur Ashe


Ascot Manor goes beyond your one-for-one model with our Lower The Net initiative. At Ascot Manor, we're helping to bring awareness to under-resourced junior players who are exceptional tennis athletes and great students. These remarkable individuals deserve to further their aspirations beyond recreational tennis but cannot afford the cost of playing on a competitive level or transitioning to pro.

Ascot Manor partners with coaches, tennis organizations, leagues, and schools to identify youth in severe economic situations who maintain a 3.0 or higher grade point average and sponsor specific fees in order to further the development of youth seeking to play D1 tennis, secure scholarships, and transition to ATP/WTA tours.


Tennis has always been, and will forever be, considered an elite sport. We love that, just not the cost for youth at risk or in unfavorable socioeconomic levels to play competitively. This has been a factor in not only dividing the rich from the poor but the middle class and minorities who account for less than 6% in youth tennis according to the USTA. Ascot Manor helps sponsor some of the below-tiered costs associated with playing competitively ranked tennis. 


  • Local transportation is determined by playing level (district, state, national)

  • Tennis academies or clinics

  • Competitive Coaching

  • Equipment strings and grips only

  • Apparel

  • Tournament registration fees

A coach or parent may submit a sponsorship request if you are a junior player seeking sponsorship. Junior players under U14 are not eligible for sponsorship. All junior players must maintain a 3.0 or higher grade point average and have played the minimum number required of competitive matches determined by age, State, or Country. Grades are to be submitted quarterly to remain sponsored by Ascot Manor. 18 and over may submit directly.
