Conga Sports Serious About Sustainability in the Sport of Tennis

Conga has signed up as business partner of ONE TREE PLANTED

 

Los Angeles, April 7, 2022 – Conga Sports Inc, a provider of tennis programs in California, announced a new initiative to alleviate the impact the sport of tennis has on the environment worldwide. Hundreds of millions of tennis balls are being manufactured each year and millions of those end up in landfills all over the world. While there is no large-scale program for recycling those balls, Conga Sports has started its own tennis ball initiative and signed up as Business Partner with One Tree Planted.

 

Conga Sports pledges to plant one tree for every can of tennis balls used within their programs.  “As part of our ONE MILLION TREES PLANTED BY 2030 goal, we’ll grow and conserve trees from the wildfire-ravaged areas in the United States to the deforested areas of the Amazon rainforest,“ said Conga Sports founder and president Rich Neher. “We will do our part to help accelerate reforestation efforts and mitigate the impacts of climate change.”

 

Conga Sports will also plant trees for every can of Pickleball ‘Wiffle balls’ and Spec Tennis low compression balls used in their programs. Neher continues, “They say the climate change crisis is the number one issue facing humanity today. Our partnership with One Tree Planted demonstrates how we are turning our sustainability commitment into meaningful community impact. That way we are already today doing our part toward a more sustainable future in racquet sports.”

Conga Sports introduces “Booster Tournaments” for underserved groups of tennis players

 

Lower-level tennis players and “returners” will have a venue to hone their skills and get ready for serious competition

 

Los Angeles, February 7, 2022 -- Conga Sports is excited to announce a series of new tennis tournaments called “Conga Boosters” in the Los Angeles area. Since Conga Sports is a licensed UTR Club, all Booster tournaments are being offered on the UTR platform

 

February 13 at Weddington Golf & Tennis in Studio City
March 13 at Warner Tennis Center in Woodland Hills

April 24 at Burbank Tennis Center in Burbank

 

Conga Sports Founder and President Rich Neher who is also the publisher of the monthly newsletter TENNIS CLUB BUSINESS, says, “Conga Boosters are friendly, fun, 3-hour Co-ed doubles events for players who are below intermediate level and not quite ready to play on serious league teams or high-pressure tournaments. In fact, there’s no pressure at all at our Boosters.”

 

The one-of-a-kind “Booster” experience starts with a free 30-minute clinic by a certified tennis professional followed by 4 sets of fun tennis with trophies for winners and finalists.

 

“Conga Boosters are also a great way for people who were absent from the sport for years or even decades to get back into tennis in a no-pressure, friendly environment,” says Neher.

 

More Boosters, as well as higher-level tournaments and leagues, are planned for all of California this year in an effort to make Conga Sports a household name, a nationwide network of tennis players, and facilities for matchplay, learning, and networking.
