Zina Garrison, a native Houstonian, learned tennis in a free program started by John Wilkerson at MacGregor Park. During her career, she was a women’s singles runner-up at Wimbledon in 1990, a three-time Grand Slam mixed doubles champion, and a women’s doubles gold medalist at the 1988 Olympic Games.

Wanting to give back to the community and provide similar opportunities to other young people, Zina and her coach founded the Zina Garrison Academy in 1993 with her prize money from the Family Circle Cup.

ZGA is a non-profit organization that provides a free year-round tennis/fitness, wellness, and education program for children ages 4 – 18 in Houston, Texas. ZGA operates from MacGregor Park through a partnership program with the Houston Parks and Recreation Department.

Since 1993 we’ve touched the lives of over 30,000 kids!
