Founded in Tennessee in the summer of 2022 by Michelle Lin, a current Senior at Farragut High School in Knoxville, the mission of Dublin TOP has spread across state lines and across the country. Working with a multitude of organizations and advisers, Dublin TOP is a student-led non-profit that focuses on the incentive of elevating this generation's youth through the use of tennis, specifically cost-free clinics intended to expose students K-5 to the sport. Research has shown the vast amounts of benefits that sports bring to children far and wide, and we could not have agreed more. With this, Michelle decided to implement the goals of DTOP in her home state: Tennessee.

USTA Impact Conference

October 2023

This fall, Soham and Michelle were given the wonderful opportunity to attend the USTA National Impact Conference in Orlando, Florida. They were able to connect with other NJTL leaders across the country, as well as gaining further insight on coaching, organizational strategies, and fundraising developments.  



Michelle Lin: Tennessee Branch Director & Founder

Hi! My name is Michelle Lin, and I am currently a Senior at Farragut High School. I am beyond grateful for this opportunity and am looking forward to bringing the mission of Dublin TOP to Tennessee. I have played tennis since the beginning of middle school, and I now play competitively in USTA tournaments and on my high school Varsity team!
