CONNECTing Hawaii's juniors with tennis

Our History

Access Tennis: Hawaii Junior Tennis Foundation is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization. It was founded in 1966 with the purpose of supporting youth tennis in Hawaii. Previously known as Kahiau: A Tennis Foundation.

In 2005 the Hawaii Tennis Patrons Association changed its name to Kahiau: A Tennis Foundation and amended its articles of incorporation to expand its purpose to promote the growth of tennis in Hawaii to youth, adults and special populations.
