support the troops through tennis

Memorial Day is just around the corner, and it’s a great time to host an event to support ThanksUSA’s mission of scholarships for military families.

Elite Pro Geoff Griffin of the Balboa Tennis Club in San Diego shared a great idea for using this program to raise funds. "Be one of the first five tennis lessons that are booked with me during the week of Memorial Day 2015, and all proceeds will go to Tennis Thanks The Troops. Would you like to join me in supporting this great cause?"

USPTA Pro Steve Kappes and Griffin are leading the way for raising money for TTTT with the fourth annual San Diego District Tennis Association's annual Tennis Fest at Balboa Tennis Club on May 3. Because of events like this and efforts from these pros, people like Bridget Benhar have become recipients of the SDDTA/ThanksUSA scholarship!

Get involved! Register your event for Memorial Day weekend. Grand Prize: A trip to the 2015 US Open! Learn more.
