Letter from the President:
  
Welcome to the website of the West Louisville Tennis Club! Your presence demonstrates an interest in understanding what we are doing in our community. West Louisville Tennis Club (WLTC) has a longstanding history of being a vital resource in our community. Since 1923, Chickasaw Park has been considered our home court.

Our mission is two-fold, first and foremost, we exist to nurture and support the character development of our most precious resources, our youth. Secondly, we provide an exercise alternative for our community, to include seniors, that are interested in learning the game of tennis.
  
In this year, 2019, we were faced with our most difficult challenge. Due to a shortfall in the City’s budget, the Mayor mandated the cancellation of funding for all capital projects. One of the projects slated to be cancelled was the “yearly maintenance of the clay courts” in Chickasaw Park.
 
As a result, WLTC set a goal to build an understanding of just how important the courts in Chickasaw Park are to the West Louisville community. As it turned out, our biggest challenge became our greatest blessing! The tennis community and the Louisville community, as a whole, rallied behind us!
 
Community partners include:
Olmsted Park Conservancy
USTAKY, “Raise the Racquet for Kentucky Foundation
Metro Parks
Tennis Technology
 
In just (2) weeks, the funds raised not only covered the cost of reconditioning our clay courts, they also covered the labor costs associated with clay court preparation and repair of severe cracks in our hard courts! We started the year worrying if there would be any functional courts for the 2019 season. However, as of this date, May 20th, 2019, we will have full access to all (12) courts!
 
We could not have planned for a better outcome. We’ve established lifelong community partnerships, joined by a spirit of compassion and love for community…This Is Priceless!
 
The West Louisville Tennis Club would like to THANK all our supporters, most of whom are unknown. However, what we do know, we are part of a caring community that values our youth and the need to support their physical, mental and character development. These are the qualities that define a “World Class City!”   
 
 
“LET’S PREPARE TO PASS THE BATON TO THE NEXT GENERATION”
 
Sincerely,
 
Dr. Aretha Fuqua, WLTC President
