Greetings CBTC Family,
As we all continue to enjoy our holiday weekend, we wanted to take a moment and share our gratitude for the support you all have shared for our organization. One year ago on June 4th, over twenty people of color gathered at Freedom Park to play tennis. It was in that very moment we recognized the apparent need to create community for us in the sport.
Within one years time we have accomplished so much, and none of it would have been possible without you.
With your support we have:
Connected over 200 black tennis players in the city of Charlotte
Donated $400 to Johnson C. Smith University athletic program
Became a certified CTA with the United States Tennis Association
Launched the Black Tennis Connect App
Raised over $500 for minority youth tennis racquets
Partnered with USTA Southern Chapter to host National Tennis Month
Launched our G.O.A.T. (Getting Our Adolescents into Tennis) Initiative
As we enter into our second year of operation, we hope to do much more to impact our community. Our reach has now extended far beyond the Queen City, and supporters are eagerly anticipating all that we have in store.
Let's plan to celebrate all we have accomplished thus far by gathering as family to enjoy music, great food, and some fun and games. Click below to learn more about our one-year anniversary celebratory events.
