Join us for the 27th Annual Rodman Ride for Kids event on Saturday, September 23rd!

The Rodman Ride is the #1 single-day athletic fundraiser in the nation supporting at-risk kids and Sportsmen's Tennis & Enrichment Center is thrilled to be part of this year's event!!!

Founded in 1961, Sportsmen's is the first indoor, nonprofit tennis club in the United States built by and for the African-American community. For over 50 years, Sportsmen's has provided the communities of Dorchester, Mattapan and Roxbury with a place for youth to gather, to learn and play tennis. Today we educate, train and develop the academic and tennis skills of over 5,000 youth and young adults annually.

Our mission is to build leaders on the court, in the classroom and in the greater community by providing academic, wellness and social development programs alongside recreational and competitive tennis instruction. Sportsmen's is committed to improving life opportunities for youth in Boston's Blue Hill Corridor while welcoming a diverse community from the Greater Boston area.

About the Rodman Ride for Kids:

The Rodman Ride for Kids is an umbrella matching gift charity raising funds for youth-focused social service organizations that support at-risk kids in Massachusetts. The Ride's mission is to have every kid in our community live as we would want our own kids to live.

The Ride serves as a catalyst by providing child welfare charities an opportunity to raise funds through this event. The Ride For Kids and our affiliated charities fundraise year-round, culminating with the Ride event, a 25, 50, or 100-mile non-competitive cycling tour on Saturday, September 23rd.

All expenses associated with the Ride for Kids are underwritten by Rodman Ford. This means that when you donate to the Ride for Kids, 100% of your donation will directly impact at-risk kids!
