Toni Wiley saved Sportsmen's Tennis Club. A decade ago, the Dorchester, Mass., facility—built in 1961 and the first indoor non-profit tennis club created by and for the African-American community—was struggling to stay open. But thanks to Wiley's leadership as executive director, Sportsmen's Tennis and Enrichment Center (STEC) is now home to one of the of the biggest and best NJTL chapters in the country, transforming the lives of over 5,000 inner-city youngsters each year.
Among the programs she created is Volley Against Violence, which makes connections with local police. That program has been adopted nationally by the USTA Foundation.
Wiley and STEC have received many honors over the years, and for 2018, Tennis Industry is pleased to name Wiley our Grassroots Tennis Champion. —James Maimonis
