Please Collect Tennis Gear for the Kids of Northern Ghana


The children of Ghana love tennis. Tennis is a sport of a lifetime and promotes health and community. The economically disadvantaged children of Ghana could use our assistance. Most are currently playing with makeshift wooden paddles and old tennis balls since they do not have access to tennis equipment.

 

Please help this cause by sending any tennis equipment you can find to:

Racquets For Ghana!
c/o Abdul-Majeed Abdulai
9578 Muirkirk Rd #302
Laurel, MD 20708

 

What the children need most:

- Kids Racquets: New or used, any size. Broken strings are not a problem.

- Balls: New or used low compression balls (red, orange or green). New standard balls.

- String: Any new tennis string.

- Shoes: New or used kids tennis shoes.

 

Monetary donations are also welcome. Funds will be used to ship the tennis gear from our headquarters in Maryland to Ghana. Donated funds will also pay for string and stringing services.

 

Thank you,

Tennis brings happiness, but kids must wait in line to use the homemade racquets.
