Update on Cincinnati Tennis Foundation

By Nikki Cioffi, CFO, CTF

Cincinnati Tennis Foundation (CTF) is a non-profit organization That promotes tennis as a lifelong sport for everyone, regardless of their socio-economic background, age, or ability. After resurfacing the Withrow courts in 2021, we were excited to begin rebuilding tennis in this community. In 2022, over 1700 Cincinnati area youth played tennis on the courts at Withrow participating in various and tennis and educational programs. This past fall, CTF, in partnership with CPS, High Girls club team at Withrow,introduced a Junior; and it was a great success.

Withrow alumnus Jerry Howard served as coach for the girls team. CTF is excited to kick off the boys’ season during the week of April 15. In addition, CTF is launching the first Jr. High and High School pickleball league and is actively recruiting players from the Withrow community. In addition,  to the commitment to rebuild tennis programs at Withrow other CPS schools, CTF works to maintain the courts with several new tennis and pickleball nets each year. We offer a variety of tennis programs, summer camps, after-school programs, and tournaments throughout the year. By providing access to sports programs and education, CTF helps young people develop important life skills, such as teamwork, communication, and leadership.

After a 2020 pandemic-shortened 1-6 season, the Tigers have a new attitude. This year they had a 9-1 winning season and were in the postseason playoffs for the first time since 2013, when they lost a playoff game. They finished this season ranked 8th in Ohio and played 9th ranked Troy in a first playoff game. Troy scored the first touchdown, but the Tigers then scored 29 points for Withrow’s first playoff win in 102 years. Senior running back Ty’Aris Stevenson ran for 256 yards and a touchdown, while senior quarterback Antwonex Fant ran for 78 and a score and threw a touchdown to fellow senior Donsha Knox.
