Class Sponsor: Bitsy Grant Round Robin

Today's featured class sponsor is a group of tennis friends playing out of Bitsy Grant Tennis Center in Atlanta, GA.  In between ALTA seasons, these friends hold a round robin tournament. Sunday's tournament was held to benefit Books for Keeps.

The players chipped in to adopt a class, and Bitsy Grant donated $4 of each $10 entry fee. It was a beautiful day for tennis (or so I heard... from inside the windowless BFK warehouse) and 16 players enjoyed a friendly, social day of tennis. No winners or losers... just playing for fun with no pressure. Some even brought books to donate.

Thank you to Taylor & David Alexander, who were instrumental in arranging for BFK to be the recipient of this wonderful group's effort, and to Bitsy Grant for donating a portion of the entry fees. Thanks also to the participants: your donations are going to provide 12 books plus a tote bag to every child in an Athens elementary school class, and keep those children reading all summer long!
