The SDDTA is working with the Latin American Tennis Foundation (LATF) and
Youth Tennis San Diego (YTSD) to further opportunities for Latino players of all ages.
The LATF was established because of the lack of quality, high profile organizations representing Latino tennis players and their needs. Through the efforts of my Love & Love Tennis Foundation and by working with underserved Latino community members, I realized more needs to be done in raising awareness and money to provide tennis to kids who only know about soccer and other team sports. I've built a strong relationship with the Pancho Gonzalez Foundation; hosting tennis clinics for Hispanic Heritage Month and collaborating on additional ideas to elevate and support Latinos in the sport. Greg & Dan Gonzales and I have talked about the need to have all Latinos under one big umbrella organization - Imagine what we can do together!
