TENNIS-BASED
CHARITIES!

Most of these charities will accept money,
tennis racquets in good condition,
and even your time!

Some of these charities offer freebies
with your tax-deductible donation!
(offers are subject to change, so ask them, beforehand!)

Please mention the 'Tennis in Paris!' website
when you visit them and make a donation.

The links on this page are in no particular order!

The International Tennis Hall of Fame
Newport, Rhode Island

Get free tickets to the
annual Tennis Hall of Fame games
(held after Wimbledon)
with your donation!


(donations must be made well in advance of the event,
and you must request the free tickets at that time.
They are usually very generous with the number of tickets they send,
but be sure to ask for the number you need, just in case;
also, seating is on a first-come-first-served basis,
so arrive early that day to be sure you get a seat!)
