A HUGE THANK YOU goes to our tennis, pickleball & ping-pong players, guests, friends and especially to our sponosors and committe members! We could not have had a successful event with out you and you made it a fun, memorable and exciting weekend! WE DID IT!! Our 2021 Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Memphis Tennis Invitational was a resounding success raising over $210,000!
With over 100 tennis players across 4 host clubs, over 30 pickleball players at Memphis Country Club, and 20 ping-pong players at Crosstown Concourse, we had two days of celebrations and friendship! Participants enjoyed tough competition while reuniting with old and new friends and raising funds and awareness for BGCM.
We want to take a moment to thank our sponsors who without we wouldn’t have a tournament or be able to fund the programming and services we provide to the youth in our community. This year looks vastly different than any other in our 58 years in Memphis. The Coronavirus pandemic has forever altered our history.
The safety of our Club kids has always been a priority and number one initiative in creating a safe afterschool environment for our kids, some of whom have never experienced feeling safe, having a reliabile adult, or consistency in their lives, however COVID-19 has brought an awareness of the need for stringent procedures not only for their personal safety but also the safety for them and their families health. We are only able to continue forging forward in 2021 with YOUR SUPPORT. A HUGE THANK YOU to Truist and The Academy Place Foundationfor being our Presenting Sponsors. Your support during the pandemic has transcended all our wishes.
WE HOPE TO SEE EVERYONE AGAIN IN 2022
