Swing Racquet + Paddle is excited to announce our sponsorship of the Raleigh Tennis Association’s Try Tennis Community Outreach Program. Swing’s contribution will provide twenty-five Try Tennis Toolkits — bringing the total to fifty toolkits with RTA’s matching donation — to families in diverse, underserved communities as well as to programs that serve those families. Each Family Try Tennis Toolkit includes:
“We owe so much gratitude to Swing Racquet + Paddle for their generous sponsorship of the Try Tennis Community Outreach Program,” Julie Dick, Executive Director of RTA commented. “Because of their donation, deserving families and community-based programs in diverse, underserved communities will now receive fifty Try Tennis Toolkits.”
To identify recipients of the toolkits, the RTA Serves Committee is collaborating with, but not limited to, Communities In School, Raleigh Housing, and Boys and Girls Clubs. RTA and Swing will distribute the kits throughout September.
“Swing Racquet + Paddle is thrilled to sponsor the RTA’s Try Tennis Community Outreach Program. We know the value of tennis — from the incredible health benefits to being one of the safest sports to play during a pandemic. It is important to us, as a member of this community, to give back. By providing families in need with the gift of tennis, we hope we can bring a little joy into someone’s life that could turn into a lifetime of fun” says Rob Autry, Founder and CEO of Swing Racquet + Paddle.
