Rally for Tennis?
Founded by Alek Karagozyan, Tait Oberg, and Cole Oberg in 2021, Rally for Tennis is a call for all junior tennis players to join the effort to promote tennis and make it accessible for all kids.
Organically developed and powered by volunteer junior tennis players, our mission is to help launch fun and innovative fundraising events to sponsor and highlight organizations that help underprivileged kids gain access to tennis and training. We leverage community, service and the love of tennis.
On August 15, 2022, the second annual Rally for Tennis summer event will be held at Longfellow's summer camp site at the Brandeis University tennis courts (Waltham, MA). The event will have a tennis clinic and a team-based fun doubles round robin tournament, as well as raffles, prizes, food and drinks. Younger players will be able to improve by hitting with older USTA "captains". All team players (around ages 12 to 16) must register and pledge to solicit donations for Advantage Kids (minimum of $50 per player). 100% of all funds donated will go directly to Advantage Kids. All expenses are covered by sponsorships. So, let's all RALLY to support Advantage Kids!
Advantage Kids introduces New Hampshire's youth to the benefits of tennis and yoga, developing them in mind and body. As New Hampshire's only NJTL (National Junior Tennis & Learning) organization, we combine tennis and social-emotional-learning to empower kids on and off the courts - giving them advantages that will lead to a lifetime of success.
In partnership with the US Tennis Association, as a National Junior Tennis & Learning organization, or NJTL, it is our mission to continue to grow the sport of tennis while enhancing the lives of underserved kids. Founded by Artur Ashe fifty years ago, the NJTL model exists throughout the country, offering tennis and learning to thousands of youth in different ways. Advantage Kids is New Hampshire's only NJTL, and one of few offering mindfulness in the country.
