I think it's important for TAT to be involved in charity work on some level.

TAT is currently sponsoring the charity, "Nothing But Nets (http://www.nothingbutnets.net/)" with a goal of $1,000. We're nearly there with only $200 left before our goal is reached. (If you'd like to donate, click here (https://secure.e2rm.com/registrant/PersonalPage.aspx?EID=8291&RegistrationID=253872). )

After this drive is complete, I'd like to sponsor another charity. But this time I'd like it to be something related to our favorite sport, horseshoes tennis. I'm looking for suggestions. I'd like it to be something general and not a specific player's foundation. And preferably not associated with a specific region or country.

If you have any ideas, please post them here along with a URL to a website (if available).

What about Krill? I don't know if this qualifies as a charity. For all I know, his family may be filthy rich. Or some other young player who happens to be from a disadvantaged background.

Or maybe we could adopt a wheelchair tennis player with a limited source of income... Something that could help cover the cost of airfare or hotel accommodations while he/she's competing at a Slam.

These may not be the best, or most realistic ideas, but they're ideas... Maybe they'll spark a better one.

Go Bucks!

Vladimir Voltchkov called... he needs tennis shoes. (I'm evil)

Seriously, I don't know if I like the idea of sponsoring an individual. there is no way we can all agree on one person, especially without having met them, which is rather impossible for the whole TAT community to do.

I would consider sponsoring a tennis center, maybe something inner-city or in a poor country. I would suggest the Harlem Tennis Center, but it just got renovated and had a huge fundraiser (Blake brothers v. McEnroe brothers) a couple weeks ago.

But maybe something like that?

what was the project Andrea Jaeger created before she entered the nunnery?

Or the programs that beneit from Arthur Ashe Day at the Open...think its a playground league in inner cities. I know there is a local chapter here in Philly.

I like the idea of sponsoring a player for one reason only...we make a patch for them to wear advertising TAT. Though...i'm just kidding, of course... ;)

umm
idk..i like the idea that Moose has.. All of the ideas sound good.

speaking of the charity...I think i'll donate in a few days..i'm quite broke right now.
