At Athlete’s Mission, we are dedicated to bridging the gap between tennis players and the corporate world. We help talented tennis players mitigate the cost of competing and reaching their full potential as athletes by connecting them with companies looking for enthusiastic ambassadors, and also potential life-long influencers and consumers. We work to make connections that truly benefit everyone involved, and we advocate equally for both the players and the brands.

We work with athletes as young as twelve years old through to professional players competing in the ATP, WTA, and IFT tours. We spend the time to fully understand each corporate partner’s needs and the strengths and marketability of each player so that we can facilitate the best aligned and most profitable partnerships.

As tennis players ourselves, we understand the cost of competing in tennis. Everything from the cost of coaching to tournament entry fees can be a financial burden for athletes and/or their families. Elite college athletes can fail simply due to lack of funding. Professional athletes must not only compete on the court but also manage all expenses; we have spoken with hundreds of professional tennis players who say that the steady influx of a few thousand dollars a month would allow them to compete in Grand Slams every year! It shouldn’t be that the sheer cost of competing week after week can be the determining factor of success or failure!

We are committed to helping these amazing players on their journey to become the professional athletes they have dreamed to be. With these athletes, brand partners receive added engagement and impact on social media, an ever-increasing group of followers, users of their brand, and potential future consumers. With a working knowledge of each player’s strengths and attributes, Athlete’s Mission provides guidance with a full twelve-month cycle of how to best maximize each athlete’s exposure and social media reach.

When a company decides to work with us, they are not only getting customized bi-weekly lists of athletes we think are a good complement for their organization, but also complete access to our athlete database; our partner companies have access to the next potential generation of great amateurs, soon to be professional players.

For Our Athletes

We will never charge you more than $2.99 per month, and we will never take a percentage or portion of what you earn with our corporate partners.

Who we are:

Athlete’s Mission is a part of BTR Tennis – an organization made up entirely of tennis fanatics – committed to changing the landscape of tennis from juniors up to the professional level. The leadership team comprises current and past ATP players, and current elite-level national and international amateur players. As an organization, we have run hundreds of tournaments across the United States, and in 2022, our tournament schedule is estimated to exceed five hundred events. We will be holding our first two professional tournaments in North America in 2022. We have a unique and personal understanding of the cost of competing, and a deep understanding of true relationships between branding and partnerships.

Tennis Database:

With the largest tennis database in the world, including players ranging from twelve years old to ATP and WTA players, high performance tennis coaches impacting all levels of tennis from grassroots to professional – and continuously receiving new profiles from around the globe – our brand partners will touch and have influence around the world.

Each database profile covers all aspects of tennis, social media, and potential demographic reach. Our brand partners will feel a connection to each athlete and coach in our database beyond just their tennis, getting to understand how each person can promote true engagement.

HOT SHOTS!

Another exciting facet of this new platform is our partnership with TennisONE, the premiere app for the tennis community. This partnership is bringing “Hot Shots” to the program. Hot Shots is a chance for our athletes to upload video shorts of their best shots each week onto the TennisONE App. The app’s more than 170K users will vote on their favorites and the top vote-getters each month will be awarded prizes from sponsor brands. This partnership will bring additional exposure to our athletes as they work to build their fandom and increase their endorsement opportunities.

For our brand partners this is an excellent opportunity to have their name and logo visible to the more than 170K users. We will work with our brand partners to best showcase their company with this weekly contest.
