ADOPT-A-UNIT

1001_MilitaryUnit[1]
The Adopt-A-Unit effort is designed to guide tennis organizations and players to ‘adopt’ a military unit of anywhere between 25-100 service members deployed to Afghanistan by sending care packages of necessities. Additionally, you can purchase a portable tennis kit from Wilson to send to the adopted unit; the kit includes instructions and educational information on tennis.
 
The effort allows the tennis community to show support and to introduce soldiers to a recreational means for reintegrating with family, friends and community upon their return from conflict.

AAU_3[1]

Tennis courts are sometimes built within the epicenter of chaos, where bomb-blasted land once inhabited by a radical Taliban resistance has been reset for the better. And those who are building these courts, both a home and abroad, are among the most selfless, dedicated Americans of all.
