Founded in 1916 in Washington, D.C., the American Tennis Association created a circuit of clubs and tournaments for black tennis players who were excluded from the U.S. Lawn Tennis Association. Since then the mostly-volunteer organization has served all players while challenging the racial barriers of segregation, cultivating promising young talent, providing a vital social network for African American professionals such as past notables Althea Gibson and Arthur Ashe, and influencing younger black stars such as current players Venus and Serena Williams and Sloane Stephens.
