Partnership with Southside Bangers Helps Grow Local Tennis, Entering 2nd Year

In the spring of 2017, Felt partnered with the Southside Bangers, a local group of league tennis teams founded by Scott Berens and Travis Sparks. Southside Bangers USTA teams include: W2.5, W3.0, W4.0, MXD7.0, MXD8.0, MXD10.0, M4.5, M5.0 and combo 7.5, 8.5. 

Our goal was simple - produce an attractive dri-fit team jersey at an affordable price, then encourage members of the various teams to buy it. Thanks to Scott and the great group of caring people, approximately 60 shirts were purchased. Because of these purchases, Felt was able to write a check for $600 to the Capital Area Tennis Association, earmarked specifically for underprivileged junior development programs.

Scott mentioned, “Working with Felt has been so easy. It’s a win/win/win: they take all the hassle and arrangements of coordinating team jerseys off my hands, we get a great feeling and great looking gear, AND we raise funds that go towards the next generation of tennis superstars."

The results of this year's Southside Bangers jersey sales and contributions nearly doubled. Close to 100 shirts were purchased resulting in a donation to CATA for $1,000! As the partnership continues, we are excited to build on this success, continuing to generate funds that help put rackets and the experience of tennis into the hands of new youth tennis players in our community.
