Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 01, 2015
ACEing Autism, a non-profit organization that uses tennis to make a positive impact on the lives of autistic children, is proud to announce a new partnership with PlayYourCourt.
PlayYourCourt is a nationwide mobile tennis that makes tennis more accessible by offering convenient tennis lessons to prospective players on their local neighborhood court. Through this partnership PlayYourCourt will donate a portion of every lesson sale to help ACEing Autism enhance the lives of children with autism spectrum disorders through the sport of tennis.
While many children with ASD have received traditional therapy, there is a serious void for recreational opportunities and activities. ACEing Autism’s tennis programs are designed to benefit children on the Autism spectrum by improving many aspects of their development including health, fitness, hand-eye coordination, motor development and social skills.
Scott Baxter, PlayYourCourt CEO & Founder says, "We could not be more excited to partner with ACEing Autism. It has always been our mission to make the sport of tennis more accessible and ACEing Autism has given us an incredible opportunity to take this mission one step further to people that need it the most.”
On top of PlayYourCourt’s contribution from every lesson sale, they plan to engage and educate their network on ACEing Autism's mission as well as run additional fundraising campaigns to coincide and promote upcoming ACEing Autism events.
Richard Spurling, CEO of ACEing Autism, expressed his gratitude for the partnership: “We are delighted to align ACEing Autism with PlayYourCourt, who shares so many of our values, and we are grateful as to the significant impact this partnership will have on increasing the number of children we can connect using tennis within more communities across America.”
PlayYourCourt is the latest company to show a corporate social responsibility within the community and joins Tennis Channel, Image Cube, PECS, and HEAD PENN as ACEing Autism’s corporate sponsors.
