Tennis is a game which brings people together. However, there are many children who will never have the opportunity to play the game due to limited economic resources. Zachary Mintz and his twin sister, Paige, two high school sophomores, founded Tennis Racquets for Kids Inc. Both Paige and Zachary are avid tennis players and compete in many United States Tennis Association local and national junior tournaments. Over the last several years, they have accumulated a number of racquets that they had outgrown and were taking up space in their garage. They realized that these racquets were in very good condition and could provide a wonderful opportunity for children who could not afford to buy tennis racquets. In addition, they thought that other players would also have extra racquets lying around with no purpose. This concept became the inspiration for the creation of Tennis Racquets for Kids Inc., a non profit tennis charity that collects racquets that are no longer being used and redistributes them to children or organizations that need them. What a great way to help others and at the same time, be kind to the environment by recycling!
