Boston Tennis Classic – HELP and RAFFLE ITEMS NEEDED

Dear Tennis4all members,

Did you know that this year’s Boston Tennis Classic (BTC) has earned Masters (think Jedi NOT S & M) status from the Gay and Lesbian Tennis Alliance (GLTA)? It also won the Best Large Tournament for 2018!

This year’s BTC will take place June 14-16 at the Beren Tennis Center at Harvard University with a banquet on Saturday night at the Ben Franklin Institute of Technology.  The Tennis4All Board of Directors want to make this year’s tournament the best ever.

You are probably thinking 🤔 “How can I help?”

WE NEED RAFFLE PRIZES!!  As part of the tournament, there is a raffle that supports a charity, New England Wheelchair Sports. 

We are looking for high quality raffle items that can be used by people who travel from all over the world. Great items include hotel stays, airline tickets (does anyone work for an airline?), gift certificates to places like Tennis Warehouse, Grand Slam tickets or anything else that you might be able to think of. Please let me know if you might be able to help! 

What else do we need? VOLUNTEERS!!

PEOPLE TO WORK THE TOURNAMENT DESK – this would involve greeting people, putting matches out on court and collecting scores.

BANQUET SET UP AND BREAK DOWN – this would involve helping set up and break down the banquet at the Ben Franklin Institute – have a gift for decorating?  Don’t keep that talent a secret!  Help us!!

Thanks for your support.  Let’s showcase our great city and make this year’s Boston Tennis Classic the best ever.

Sincerely,

Steve Menichetti, President of Tennis4All
