As winners of the first tournament Carrington and Schwartz have been named ITHF x FILA Junior Ambassadors. They will receive FILA and International Tennis Hall of Fame co-branded tennis apparel and performance footwear.
The Hall of Fame will host a second invitational tournament in July. The tournament will be held in conjunction with the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships and will offer the junior players the opportunity to compete on the historic grass courts of the Hall of Fame, just prior to the ATP pros competing on the same courts. Additionally, the partnership will be activated year-round with FILA apparel and special programming for the junior players who play at the Hall of Fame Tennis Club.
In addition to this partnership with the International Tennis Hall of Fame, FILA is highly engaged in providing other valuable experiences for young athletes, offering on-court programming and sponsoring academies like the Junior Tennis Champions Center in College Park, Maryland; Van der Meer Tennis in Hilton Head, South Carolina; and Indian Wells Tennis Garden, in Indian Wells, California, home of the BNP Paribas Open. To further connect with junior players, FILA’s Junior Tennis Mentor Program provides access to professional athletes like ATP World Tour player, Sam Querrey, who shares tips, advice and a perspective on the transition to professional tennis.
The new partnership extends FILA’s long-time support of the International Tennis Hall of Fame, as FILA is also an active supporter of the museum at the Hall of Fame and the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships, an ATP World Tour event.
