Club Tennis #JourneytoGold
The UMass Tennis Club has earned it's second consecutive bid to the USTA National Tennis Tournament. It is a phenomenal honor, however it comes with added expenses. Being the only public school in New England to qualify (accompanied by private, mainly Ivy League schools) we are given the added challenge of raising the necessary funding by a variety of means. All funding will be put to use whether towards travel (rental car and gas), food and water, or lodging. Although we have applied to many grants (pending approval) it a a competitive process and in no way guaranteed. Thus, we implore our friends and families to help support the home team in pursuit of a National Championship. This is our #JourneyToGold!
Breakdown of needed Funds:
$275 for our team registration fee
$500 to cover gas costs to drive down to Cary, NC
~$1800 for 4 nights in the tournament hotel
~$900 for food costs during the tournament
