How will your project impact Oberlin?

This winter term, Oberlin College’s men’s and women’s tennis teams will travel to Australia as ambassadors of Oberlin in competition against local college teams. As well as exploring and immersing ourselves in the culture down under, we will also have the opportunity to attend the Australian Open for a couple rounds of play. Several of our players are also using this trip to supplement their winter term projects, including a variety of endeavors in photography and anthropology.

The trip costs roughly $5,000 per person, and we have all worked hard fundraising individually and collectively to reach our expected costs. Our fundraising projects have included:

 - hosting several community tennis events (junior clinics, co-ed doubles round-robin tournaments with members from the men’s and women’s teams and members of the local community)

- teaching kids’ tennis clinics every Monday and Wednesday

- stringing rackets for friends and enthusiasts of the OC tennis community

- hosting a night at the college ‘Sco!

We are very fortunate for this opportunity and have done as much as we can to pay for it ourselves. That being said, any donation you make will help us cover the last bit of our expenses and will be very greatly appreciated!

Perks:
To thank you for your gift, you will be entered to win a Yonex racket signed by Ana Ivanovic.
