Since the 1970s we’ve been finding ways to use the game of tennis to reach both children and adults with the life-changing message of the gospel. Throughout the U.S. and around the world, our goal is to serve the needs of college and professional tennis players while helping them grow in their relationship with God. With trained staff on over 100 college campuses across the United States, Athletes in Action is purposeful in encouraging student athletes to know, grow, and go with Jesus into the world in which they are called.
Our Purpose: Help you grow in your faith and use your God-given talents to build life-changing bridges in the world of tennis.
Our Plan: Partner with local churches and tennis clubs for housing and tennis outreach events and involve daily practices, Bible study, tournament competition, and fun!
AIA Tennis Opportunities include:
"I loved going on the Athletes in Action trip because it created an atmosphere where I could train hard, compete, and improve in my sport. Most importantly, the trip gave me a great opportunity to use my sport as a platform to share the Gospel of Christ with others. I would encourage everyone to take a trip with Athletes in Action!"
"We arrived as strangers, after a couple weeks of sharing God's love, amazing experiences, overcoming challenges, laughter, and love, we left as friends! I will remember this trip for a lifeftime. This experience was such a blessing and taught me to have faith and trust in the power of God's love."
"Going back to my home country of Nepal with AIA Tennis was a great experience to use the sport that I love in order to bring the the gospel back to my home country."
"My trip in 2006 is still to this day the most exhilirating trip of my life. It was a gift from God saying keep enjoying the sport of tennis and making my name known through it.

It's an exhilirating calling God has given me!
