ABOUT The Bush-Wikse ACE Outreach Program
The Bush ACE Outreach Program was launched in 2016, at the Bush Tennis Center in Midland, Texas to Advice, Cousel and Encourage (ACE) area youth by connecting positive role models with elementary-aged children through the sport of tennis. Thanks to partnerships with the University of Texas Permian Basin (UTPB and the United states Tennis Association (USTA), ACE has provided free in school programs to over 40,000 elementary-aged children throughout the Permian Basin and free or discounted after-school and summer programs supported by the Bush Tennis Center. In addition to learning the sport of tennis, ACE promotes the core values of sportsmanship, integrity, self-confidence and hard work.
In 2023, ACE will continue to expand throughout Texas with new partnerships with the USTA Arthur Ashe National Junior Tennis & Learning program (NJTL), Baylor Tennis, Texas A&M Tennis, TCU Tennis, UTPB Tennis, UT Austin Tennis and UT San Antonio Tennis. The 2023-2024 Bush ACE Outreach Program goal is to reach over 200,000 Texas children.
