Thank you to all of the Captains, players and supporters who helped make the Smash and Cup amazingly successful. Huge thank you to our presenting sponsor The New Balance Foundation.

The Cup last Thursday was a special day for 24 young Tenacity tennis players. Players and donors united to support thousands more Tenacity students with overwhelming generosity.

The mission is benefiting from more than $900,000 raised to fund front-line staff in schools, activities that engage student family members, field trips, learning materials, summer tennis programs, academic enrichment programs, college preparation programs and more. Thank you for helping us make a direct impact on young lives.

To each and every Tenacity student on the courts and in the classrooms – helping these wonderful students shape a bright future was the driving force for these events.

Indefatigable professional photographer Pierce Harman powered through both the Smash and Cup, donating a ton of time to Tenacity and capturing some wonderful shots. He has set up galleries on his website where you can both view and download images at no cost. Links to the galleries are below.
