TB10 Challenger USA
Tie Break Tens (TB10) took its grassroots initiative Stateside in early 2019. Partnering with NYJTL (New York Junior Tennis and Learning), Wilson and FILA, TB10 held tournaments across NYC with the objective of encouraging kids to compete in a fun, relaxed environment. Hundreds of kids aged between 14-18 signed up to win the trip of a lifetime to play on the prestigious Stadium 2 at Indian Wells!
Eight lucky winners from the NYC area won the right to fly to IW for an all expenses paid trip to the BNP Paribas Open where they competed in the TB10 Challenger USA Finals. Finalists lived like pros; attending the Wilson photoshoot with Roger and Serena, being kitted out by FILA and receiving a brand new Wilson Clash racket.
“We have been thrilled by the results in our TB10 Challenger USA roll-out, with some fantastic feedback from both players and coaches. Our objective is to inspire kids to pick up a racket and have a go, no matter their ability, because TB10 is a quick, fun format that anyone can play” said Felicity Barnard, CEO of Tie Break Tens.
Liezel Huber, seven-time Grand Slam Doubles Champion and Board Director at NYJTL, said “We would like to thank Tie Break Tens, Wilson and FILA for investing in these kids who come from the poorest areas, because this is really a dream come true for them”.
