PGA TOUR Superstore and Atlanta Falcons Youth Foundation Team Up to Support Youth Tennis
PGA TOUR Superstore and the Atlanta Falcons Youth Foundation (AFYF) have awarded a $10,000 grant to Georgia Tennis Foundation to deliver year-round youth tennis programming in Atlanta and Gainesville.
In partnership with the Blank Family Youth YMCA, the Butler Street YMCA and the Georgia Mountains YMCA, the Georgia Tennis Foundation will deliver after-school and summer programming to 800 youth.
The award is part of AFYF’s ongoing initiative to improve youth fitness and reduce childhood obesity. PGA TOUR Superstore supports youth tennis through equipment donations, clinics and instruction.
"Georgia Tennis Foundation is using tennis to encourage more young people to adopt healthy, active lifestyles," said Ralph Stokes, director of partnership marketing and events for PGA TOUR Superstore. “We are thrilled to expand access for more youth in Atlanta and Gainesville.”
Founded in 1983, the Georgia Tennis Foundation seeks to grow and enhance tennis in the state of Georgia by providing community tennis programs with an emphasis on youth development. Through its YMCA Tennis Georgia program, the Georgia Tennis Foundation is serving 10,000 youth at more than 46 YMCA sites across the state.
