Not far from the banks of the Schuylkill River, eight full size tennis courts are used by thousands of children each year to not only learn the game - but how to be caring, responsible adults.
It's the mission of Legacy Youth Tennis and Education to help young people from across our area, especially those from under-resources families and communities.
Legacy program managers say they want kids to know it's not about winning and losing, but what the kids do off the court and how they conduct themselves that matters most in life.
It's this ongoing effort to improve the lives of kids in our area that inspired cash back website DealAction.com to partner with Legacy.

"The role of sports has shown to be strongly linked to building social cohesion and social capital among young people," said David.
