What a year!
Our second annual Rally for Tennis events took place in August 2022! Not only did we continue our partnership with Advantage Kids in New England, but we have expanded our reach by partnering with Greater Newark Tennis and Education (GNTE) in New Jersey.
Thanks to our incredible sponsors, more than 500 donors, and over 75 volunteers, both Rally for Tennis events raised $69,779!
These amazing events featured an afternoon of tennis clinics and exhibition play, along with enticing raffle prizes and an online silent auction. All participants celebrated the afternoon with pizza, snacks and ice cream. Families joined the fun, and it was great to have all the juniors working together to encourage and support young tennis players.
Special thanks to the Longfellow Tennis Club and West Orange Tennis Club for donating their beautiful courts so we could host these two events! These activities could not have taken place without their generosity, and we are extremely grateful!
Due to the success of these events, over 1,000 kids from under-resourced communities will gain access to free tennis clinics, equipment and instruction from Advantage Kids and GNTE. We are so happy to support these two wonderful organizations who are doing so much year-in and year-out.
We plan to build on this momentum next year by expanding our reach to new regions, such as Utah, while also continuing to hold our annual events in New England and New Jersey.
Thanks again for your continuing support!
