Create Scholar Athletes Through Tennis & Education

A tennis center is really a means of socializing the youth who use it; to help build character, self-confidence, and enhance their self image.
- Arthur Ashe

Portland After-School Tennis & Education (PAST&E) uses tennis, a sport for life, as a vehicle for change for at-risk youth at the St. Johns Racquet Center in North Portland.

Making tennis accessible has helped PAST&E build a team environment involving parents, teachers, coaches and volunteers in the development of each scholar athlete. Join PAST&E and Player's Racquet Shop of Beaverton and you can receive great incentives from Player's and the Give!Guide.

Help PAST&E Combat Summer Learning Loss and Childhood Obesity

Dear Friend,

It's not too late to help low-income children stay safe, active, and learning this summer!

Your contribution to PAST&E today will enable "scholar athletes" like Franciso, Kassandra, Holli, Tsiyon, and Alberto (pictured) to participate in our nine-week "Serving Up Success" Summer Program at St. Johns Racquet Center (SJRC).

With full days of writing, math, history, art, science, fitness, tennis, and more, our rigorous activities keep at-risk children academically engaged, physically fit, and safe from the dangers of gang activity in their neighborhoods while their parents work.

Felton Factor Hits the Road

Miguel, Jasmine, Natisha, and Ristom (left to right with Coaches Anna Becker, John Block and Fitz Paccione) from the Felton Factor participated in a Challenger-level tournament at the Sprinker Tennis Center in Tacoma, WA on March 22-24. Facing tough competition, they had fun, learned much, and held their own. Congratulations, scholar athletes, for bringing home trophies in the 12 and Under Divisions! Our young Felton Factor scholar athletes are making their benefactor, Matt Felton (former Board Chair) very proud!
