Tennis Outreach Programs (TOPs) was created by Marceil Whitney in 2003 as a desire to give back to the community by reaching disadvantaged, at-risk youth as well as other kids and teens, using tennis and education as a vehicle for success.
Since its inception, Tennis Outreach Programs has been operating out of community tennis courts until February 2012 when it opened Eastside Tennis Center in Kirkland, Washington.
Tennis Outreach Programs also currently provides tennis for the Neighborhood Schoolhouse (NHSH), a non-profit organization that services low income and other families through community classes. Their partnership started eight years ago with Tennis Outreach Programs providing a before school program called "Wake Up To Tennis".
Tennis Outreach Programs also provides before and after school tennis programs in Kirkland, WA and Woodinville, WA.
