Youths within the SIJNY (Shia Ithn’Ashery Jamat of NY) community had always talked about forming a tennis club amongst themselves. They realized that there were a good number of talented individuals who had the passion to play this exhilarating game, more than just as a past time. It was then, that an initiative was started to bring all interested players together, and Long Island Tennis Club was formed on August 4th, 2007.
Since the initial weeks of its inception, LI Tennis Club is seeing more and more upcoming players. It is the fierce competition that the elder members put up that drives the youths while bringing the excitement to the courts.
Our success is also entitled to veteran tennis players, who are constantly providing tremendous support, courage and training to the youths of the club.
The club currently only offers a program for Youths and Adults above the age of 17 years. However, we are looking to expand this, inshallah in due time.
