Let's get Sydney to the USTA Nationals!

My name is Sydney Colleen Jones and I am 14 years old. I play junior competitive tennis and I compete in state, national, and international tournaments. There is a lot of travel involved during the year and the expenses of my passion are huge and my parents already do so much for me. So, I have decided to see if I can help out a bit and do what I can to raise some funds for my trip to the USTA National Championships in Atlanta in August. I am going to do some extra jobs and babysitting in my spare time but I know I may need some help! So, I have gathered a list of people in my life who I believe would be interested in helping me along my amazing tennis journey. I'd like to request that you be one of my sponsors with a donation of $25 or more. I am working so hard in tennis and my ranking has risen to #12 in the nation and I really don’t want to miss a single opportunity to compete. Mom and Dad are helping me achieve my goals with all of their support, but staying competitive at this level is so difficult without the help of sponsors. A donation of any kind will help me get closer to my ultimate goal in tennis: being a professional tennis player!

For more information, please check out my website sydneyjonestennis.com. My dad and I designed it so I can post blogs, photos, videos and track my tennis journey. This year I continue to be sponsored by Head for my rackets, strings and bag. Thanks Head!!

Tennis is a unique sport. It isn’t like cheerleading, soccer, band, or softball because it is an individual sport and there aren’t any fundraisers to “support a team of players” or “to help raise money to perform at Disney World.” That’s why I am asking you to help support my junior tennis career. Althought I don't have a team, I need a team of people (my coaches, fitness trainer, massage therapist, doctors, my parents, and sponsors like you) to help me get to the very top. Would you like to help me get there? I would love and appreciate having you as a part of my team and I will add you to my sponsors page on my website!

My expenses for the USTA National Championships in Atlanta Friday August 1st through Saturday August 9th include the following:

Tournament Fees $130.00
Airfare (me and my coach) $1,000.00
Hotel $1,500.00
Car $360.00
Food $675.00
Coaching fees [sponsored]

Thank you so much for your consideration, support and believing in me. I will be deeply grateful if you decide to contribute. Being a student-athlete is so fun and challenging but it is also a privilege and I want to thank all my supporters for helping me achieve my goals. I will do my very best to make you proud.

Thanks so much!
