Just wanted to send an update to BRWTA members letting you know that we have donated our August 2016 entry fees to The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank and also to the Louisiana Division of The Salvation Army! We appreciate Oak Lodge working with us and not requiring us to purchase our required minimum 75 lunches for the canceled August tournament. This allowed us instead to donate to these charities.
Registration is open for the September 12th Fun Tournament! This will be a member/guest tournament. Registration will close September 6th.
BRWTA is also participating in the “Give a Racquet, Take a Racquet Tennis Gear Roundup” and will have donation boxes at the September 12th luncheon for new or “gently used” tennis apparel, shoes, racquets, bags, etc. BREC Tennis Centers at Highland Park, City Park, Independence and Forest Park will also have donation boxes available for your items during City Championship matches on Wednesday, September 7th, 14th, and 21st.
These items collected will be available at The Legacy, 1655 Sherwood Forest Boulevard, Baton Rouge, from 9am until noon on Saturday, September 17th and 24th. Members of our community who have suffered a loss during the August flood are invited to take and use donated items.
