THE STORY

Our organization Tennis for a Better Life (TFBL), took a trip to Benin, Africa. Before going, we collected used tennis equipment such as racquets, balls, shoes, clothing and tennis bags and took them with us to Cotonou, Benin Africa. Benin  is one of the poorest country in west Africa. . While  my team and I were in Benin Africa we had the opportunity to run a tennis tournament for the children, distributed  equipment, fed the children and give away prizes.

​Being in Africa and spending time with these children made us realize how lucky we are to be living in America. Here in the United States, we have tennis courts at almost every city park, school and communities and many times you will find the courts in great shape, but  empty. These children in Cotonou, Benin Africa love the game of tennis but lack everything we take for granted here in the states.  

​When leaving Benin Africa our hearts were filled with compassion for these children who were extremely talented, hungry and passionate about the game of tennis, but had no hope that it could take them anywhere in life or take them out of poverty like it did for many top players today.  Most of these children were playing barefoot. The court they were playing on had cracks everywhere and the nets were very old and had holes. The two post that holds the net up were all rusted and unsafe. What we saw in Benin, Africa and the condition in which children are playing under was heartbreaking. We decided to do more. We spoke to the Benin Tennis Federation directors and they give us the okay to come in and resurface the old tennis courts and build new courts in the community  for the children. We have decide to build a facility that won't leave any child behind. This project will have the following sports basketball, soccer and tennis beacause this this the sport that most children play in that country.

​We are always going back to Benin Africa and adding value to the children.  We would love for you to come alongside TFBL. With your help, we would  build this facility and continue to feed and provide tennis clinics, run tournaments, provide education scholarships to our tournament winners and most importantly, share the gospel of Jesus Christ with children. but in order to do all these, we need your help. Your contribution can help us tremendously.  Together we can give children a better life through  the game of tennis. Thank You! Your contribution are tax deductible. Be part of this great project.
