The Arkansas Cup Tennis Foundation is a nonprofit whose goal is to give underserved youth the opportunity to experience the joy of tennis, a sport they can play for a lifetime. In order to achieve this goal, we will be focusing on two main areas:
Aid with funding of grassroots organizations that provide underprivileged youth an introduction to tennis.
Provide underprivileged high-level junior players access to quality equipment, high-level lessons, and entry into junior tournaments.
The financial assistance of caring sponsors is crucial in carrying on this work. Please help us continue our mission by reviewing the many Arkansas Cup Tennis Foundation sponsorship opportunities we have to offer and selecting the option that best suits your company. We appreciate your support and a large portion of your contribution is tax-deductible.
Contact us and find out how you can get involved.
We’ll have more detailed information soon about specific ways you can get involved by volunteering.
Our programs are designed to bring more participation to tennis. Our partnership with the Special Olympics is focused on providing opportunities to the athletes, from introducing the game to ongoing training. Our tournament series are designed to provide more opportunities to play and also provide extra motivation to participate.
Brandon had an existing relationship with the Special Olympics prior to starting the Arkansas Cup. He reached out as he was curious why they had no tennis activities for athletes and consequently decided that he wanted to partner with the organization. As a result, the 2021 Arkansas State Games will include tennis for the first time ever.
Workshops are held once a month in rotating locations across the state of Arkansas. The goal of these workshops is to not only teach athletes but also to teach coaches how to introduce tennis to the athletes.
