THANK YOU to our tennis, pickleball & ping-pong players, guests, friends, and especially to our sponsors and committee members! WE DID IT!! Our 2022 Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Memphis Tennis Invitational was a resounding success raising over $221,000!

With over 100 tennis players across 4 host clubs, over 70 pickleball players at 2 host clubs, 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 making new friends all while raising funds and awareness for Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Memphis. Thank you to Memphis Country Club, University Club, Chickasaw Country Club, and Ridgeway Country Club for hosting our Friday night Pickleball Tournaments and Saturday Tennis Tournaments!!

We want to thank our sponsors who, without their support, we wouldn’t have had a successful event enabling us to fund the programming and services we provide to over 4,500 youth in our community. A HUGE THANK YOU to our presenting sponsor, Truist. Your support throughout the past few trying years has transcended all our wishes. Thank you to our Diamond Level Sponsors, FedEx, Nike, CityAuto, Sammarco Electric, United Planet Fitness Partners, Sorsby Company & Sorsby Financial, and Anne Wulff & Brian Bendersky. Thank you to our Tournament Sponsor Academy Place Foundation as well as our Net Sponsors, Platinum Sponsors, Silver Sponsors, Ace Sponsors, Court Plus Sponsors, Court Sponsors, and all our in-kind sponsors.

When COVID shut down our City, the number of youth in our programs drastically dropped, however, this year we have seen a resurgence in our numbers and they continue to grow each month. A great number of these new Club members come from the 10 new high school Clubs we opened in late 2021 in partnership with the City of Memphis, Memphis Shelby County Schools, and the Memphis City Council. Thank you to each member and advocate that ensured the successful partnership between all our organizations to benefit the youth in our great City.

With YOUR SUPPORT we are able to look forward to 2023 with excitement and anticipation! We will be back next year with Tennis, Pickleball, and ping-pong tournament excitement!
