July 23, 2020

BALTIMORE, July 23, 2020 — Slinger Bag Inc. (OTC: SLBG) Slinger Bag, a sports brand that pioneered the first portable tennis ball launcher for players of all abilities, today announced its partnership with the United States Tennis Association Mid-Atlantic Section (USTA MAS) #ServeItForward Junior Team Summer Community Challenge. The competition, running now through August 31, encourages junior tennis players to engage in a points race that celebrates team play and activities that give back to the tennis community. High scorers win prizes including the Slinger Bag Tennis Ball Launcher that incorporates proprietary technology into a lightweight, portable 24/7 training partner that may be set up in any open space, such as a driveway or a local park, ensuring players never have to miss a day of practice.

USTA Mid-Atlantic Section’s Junior Team Summer Community Challenge is free and open to all junior tennis players. The program encourages teams of four to six players to earn points by participating in tennis activities and community engagement. Individuals earn points for the team and the team may also earn points doing activities together. Activities include team competitions and practices, participating in virtual tennis events and engaging in community support ranging from volunteering at a local tennis club to helping a neighbor in need.

“The USTA Mid-Atlantic’s Junior Challenge is in total alignment with Slinger’s mission of making tennis more available as a way to encourage current and new tennis players to play more often,” said Mike Ballardie, chief executive officer of Slinger Bag. “Exposing young people to tennis and giving them a chance to play tennis more often is one of the most important things we do as an industry to foster a lifelong love of tennis and develop stars of tomorrow.”

“We are thrilled to launch the Junior Team Summer Community Challenge with the support of Slinger so that more young people have a fun and easy way to get active with tennis and gain the healthy benefits the sport provides,” said Tara Fitzpatrick-Navarro chief executive officer of USTA Mid-Atlantic Section. “Slinger’s involvement adds an unparalleled excitement that we know will inspire youth to go above and beyond in their tennis and community service activities through the Challenge.”

Slinger Bag’s partnership runs through mid-September. Slinger Bag Tennis Ball Launchers will be given as prizes to high scorers and will be featured in signage, on collateral material and in online posts.
