The Burgos Tennis Foundation is dedicated to providing high performance tennis training and educational support for diverse youth from the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond through a team building and life skills program. We use tennis' unique active learning experiences to inspire character development, discipline, self-discovery and problem solving. Our "Tennis is Life" and "Team" philosophies set us apart from other tennis training programs because we stress the unique life skills learned from training, competing and being part of a team. Our modest facilites add to our hard work and struggle pays off theme. These life skills developed through tennis are used in their education and their personal lives. As a result, we are the most proud of the fact that all the student athletes who have stayed disciplined, focused and loyal to Burgos Tennis have gone on to college and achieved their academic and athletic goals.
