UW Husky Tennis Club 2017
Welcome to Erica Lee's Personal Fundraising Page!
Thanks for helping the Husky Tennis Club get a chance to participate at Nationals!
Last November, our Husky Tennis Club program participated in the Sectionals tournament, the largest regional club tennis tournament of the year. There were a total of 27 teams from over 10 different colleges from around both Washington and Oregon, including the likes of Gonzaga University, University of Oregon, and Oregon State University to name a few. Our UW Team ended up winning the entire tournament, clinching our automatic berth to Nationals, which will be held in April at the newly built USTA National Campus. All of our current team members of Husky Tennis Club have never had an opportunity to attend Nationals. Hopefully, with your help, we'll be able to represent the Huskies at nationals!
Thank you for taking the time to support our club!
Who are we?
Husky Tennis Club is the University of Washington's premier athletic club for all tennis enthusiasts - undergraduates, graduates, faculty and staff! We organize practices three times a week for all members, as well as quarterly events such as our annual Fall Fling or Mixed Doubles BBQ. Additionally, we also organize travel tournaments for our more competitive members. We compete all around the Pacific Northwest, in Oregon, Washington, and even Canada!
What are we fundraising for?
This year we attended the Tennis On Campus Pacific Northwest Championships in Tualatin Hills, OR, and out of 27 teams, we emerged victorious! This win qualified us for the Tennis On Campus Nationals Tournament, the goal of our fundraiser.
Where is this tournament being held?
This year's Nationals will be held at USTA's brand new National Headquarters in Orlando, FL. We hope to raise enough money to give us a chance to compete against the best North American college club teams at this beautiful 100 court facility.
Our projected costs can be seen above. The $8000 we hope to raise will go towards the cost of travel, board, and play.
When is the tournament?
USTA's Tennis On Campus Nationals tournament will be held from April 13-15. Consequently we hope to raise enough money by the second week of April.
Why should you donate?
In addition to being some of the most passionate tennis players in the country, our travel team this year is one of the strongest in this club's 15+ year history. We put in the time and effort to hone our skills week after week, and after having conquered the Pacific Northwest Region at the Sectionals tournament, we would like to test our mettle against the finest college club teams North America has to offer. Your donation can help make our dream of attending Nationals come true!
Essentially, between 3:00pm-9:00pm on Tuesday March 28th only, at the University Way Chipotle location (4229 University Way NE, Seattle, WA), if Chipotle customers at this specific location show our displayed Chipotle digital flyer or just mention "UW Husky Tennis Club" at checkout, our Club will receive 50% of these proceeds! Any support would be much appreciated!
