July 8, 2022

Los Angeles, July 5, 2022 – Conga Sports Inc, provider of new fun and exciting tennis programs, announced the selection of Chicago-based The Ace Project as the recipient of the first Tennis Ambassador Equipment Package to acknowledge their efforts in nurturing children living in underserved communities through tennis.

Tennis Ambassador unites three of the most innovative leaders in the tennis equipment industry—Slinger®, Head Penn Racquet Sports, and the Billie Jean King Eye Coach—with one goal in mind: bringing the most advanced technology to communities that really deserve it. The initiative, conceived and managed by Conga Sports President Rich Neher, will ship one complete Slinger Bag ball machine, one junior and one adult Head tennis racquet, one case of Penn tennis balls, and one Billie Jean King Eye Coach Home Tennis Training System each month for a period of one year to a pre-selected recipient.

“We have an opportunity to help tennis organizations and individuals in low-income communities where they need it most: with equipment,” says Neher. “I’m proud and happy to be part of this unique program.”

“We are thrilled to support The Ace Project in Chicago through the Tennis Ambassador Initiative,” said Mike Ballardie, CEO of Connexa Sports, the parent company of Slinger. “The Slinger Bag was designed to make tennis more accessible and enjoyable for players of all ages and abilities, and we are proud of any role we can play in getting new players on court and excited about tennis.”

“Head Penn Racquet Sports is excited to be a part of the Tennis Ambassador program, bringing performance tennis products to deserving communities,” said Allison Barnett, Brand Manager. “The Ace Project is making a great impact in their community, and we are honored to play a part in supporting their efforts.”

“Our Chicago team is so grateful to Slinger®, Head Penn Racquet Sports, and the Billie Jean King Eye Coach for naming ACE as your Tennis Ambassador. With this equipment package, ACE youth will gain access to advanced technology that would otherwise be unavailable in our community,” says Susan Klumpner, Executive Director of The ACE Project.
