NSWTA Charity for the Charleston Tournament; Benefiting Lowcountry Youth Tennis Association

The mission of Lowcountry Youth Tennis Association (www.lytatennis.org) is “changing lives through tennis.” The vision is for all youth to have the opportunity to participate in and enjoy the benefits of tennis. The NSWTA Championships tournament committee has raised funds for LYTA since its debut in Charleston. The ladies of Daniel Island Club, our new tournament home, have joined us in supporting this worthy organization.
