Serving Love Foundation - Healthy Lives & Connected Communities Through Tennis

BRING TENNIS & PICKLEBALL TO YOUR RESERVATION

Through our program, not only will the kids learn tennis and pickleball, but they will be exercising, learning nutrition, gaining life skills, and becoming a part of a place where they belong and they matter.  In a culture that has suffered much, we love much. We are committed to health & wellness as well as preserving native identity and culture.

  • Create immediate impact on the staggering youth suicide numbers.
  • Interrupt the patterns that lead toward diabetes, obesity and heart disease.
  • Train and educate young leaders setting them up for a bright future.

 

PILLARS OF THE PROGRAM

 

HEALING

The power of healing in Native circles comes from promoting the determination, resilience and strengths of the indigenous peoples. Through stretching both our bodies and minds, Serving Love brings aspects of healing throughout its teachings.

 

FITNESS

People need to be physically active every single day. Serving Love works to provide environments that offer access to programs which promote people to grow, play and be active.

 

CONNECTION

Natives understand the strength in human connection. For all, Serving Love works to promote a sense of belonging while connecting individual relationship to land, language through the traditions of story and metaphor.

 

NUTRITION

Maintaining a nutritious diet still remains an issue for many Native Americans. As insufficient access to fresh and healthy food options continues to be a modern issue, Serving Love teaches the importance of making healthy choices.

“If you can make it on the courts, you can make it in life.  Tennis and Pickleball teach you what you need to be healthy and successful. We are committed to changing the predicted trajectories and interrupting the unsettling Native American wellness statistics.”

We encourage and welcome Native-owned and run organizations and initiatives that aim to improve the lives of the Navajo people. We support what Serving Love Foundation aims to do – using tennis and pickleball to improve the wellbeing and economic vitality and resilience of the people of the Navajo Nation.
