DETA Friends provides equitable access to sports and physical activity by supporting children, adults and families in high-need communities to achieve their greatest potential, on the field, on the court and in life.
We create opportunities through instruction, tournaments, donations of sports equipment, apparel, and footwear and programming. We provide scholarships to offset the cost of our programs.
Our goal is to improve access through the following:
Increasing the total numbers of children, adults and families participating in our sports programming.
Enhancing the experience for all involved
Creating new opportunities for the people we serve.
Youth tennis camps
Tennis instruction for people of all ages
Wheelchair tennis (the only ongoing program in Miami-Dade County)
