Welcome to the 100% Tennis website.

100% Tennis is a non-profit, outreach tennis program that was established in 2002 for the purpose of offering free tennis lessons to children living in and around the Ozark Alabama area, regardless of their skill level. This program enables children, who would otherwise never have been able to learn tennis, an opportunity to master this sport, and since its beginning in 2002 five of its students have gone on to college with a tennis scholarship. Classes are offered to children ranging in age from 6 to 17 years old and sometimes as young as age 4 if the child exhibits adequate maturity. Run by professional tennis player and coach, Kenny West, the program is custom tailored to meet the needs of the students based on both their age and skill level. As a result, students gain confidence while improving their ability on the court. It is Kenny’s passion for tennis that drives him to succeed, and through this program he hopes to instill the same passion in these children so that they can take with them the self-assurance and skills needed to build a future for themselves in the career of their choice.

Kenny brings to 100% Tennis all his experience as a professional player and coach.  This program was a dream shared by his mentor, world renowned coach, Dr. Alexander Mayer.  Now with the help of former college teammate and instructor, Mr. Mike Watson, Kenny continues this dream each year by bringing the sport of tennis into the lives of children that may not otherwise have the opportunity.

With your help, this dream will continue to make a difference in the lives of many deserving children. The program is completely funded by individual and corporate donations, and all the money raised is used directly to teach the children.  Please refer to the Donations page to learn how to contribute to this very worthwhile cause.
