An Invitation to Allinbklyn Members from KCTL

Dear Allinbklyn Community,

I wanted to let you know of 2 events we are running this summer which you and the AllinBKLYN ladies might enjoy coming along too. I think you mentioned that you can post these on your website? The details are below, please let me know if you need more info?

8/3 (time TBD) - The Davis Cup - Marcy Playground (753 Myrtle Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11205)

This event sees all 6 sites represent a country of their choice. Students spend 2 weeks learning about the countries and at The Davis Cup they present interesting facts, while national anthems are played. Each country then compete against each other to win the coveted Davis Cup!

9/21 (time TBD) - The Jamboree - Marcy Playground

Season ending community party and tennis tournament. Students from every site compete in a singles and doubles tournament. Other activities are organized for the families and community members along with a big cookout and music.

Hope that you and the Allinbklyn team can make one of these events Eliza, they are a lot of fun!

Register for the 2nd Annual KCTL Doubles Open

Dear KCTL Supporters

I'm excited to announce that we have a date for our 2nd KCTL Annual Tennis Fundraiser! The tournament this year will be held on Saturday, March 30th, from 6pm-9pm. We will once again be using the courts at McCarren Tennis Center. The tournament will be catered and the weekend date this year allows more potential for celebrations to follow the event!

Last year was a huge success with some great matches throughout the evening. The format will again mean that everyone gets plenty of time on the court and opportunities to contribute to your overall team scores. Our KCTL students will help draw the teams (consisting of 4 players) on the evening, with each team balanced based on the ratings you provide. 

This year our target is to raise $15,000 which will go directly to expanding programming to our 6th site in 2019, Ingersoll Houses. We are currently running a Winter Program at Ingersoll Houses with over 35 students and we intend to provide these children, and many more, free tennis and life-skills programming throughout the year and beyond. Please help us reach our goal and expand our programming to over 200 children in 2019!

If you would like to enter then please click the button or flyer below. You can always reach out to me directly at if you need more information.

To raise money for the event, you can do so using Crowdrise here:

Looking forward to another great night of tennis!
