building the legacy together
While athletes attending American schools enjoy tremendous popularity, attention and support from their local communities, alumni, schools, cities and governments, even the best athletes attending Swiss universities have very little recognition, zero support in form of scholarships for their athletic excellence, zero support from responsible organisations, and therefore zero opportunities to improve.
They had to work hard on daily basis for years, in order to become who they are today. They had to sacrifice a lot, and overcome many obstacles on their way of becoming one of the best in their country. Then, they were told to choose between the school and sport first at gymnasium, and those very few persistent ones, that kept following their dream, are now facing even less support at their universities. Our mission in Switzerland, is to motivate performance athletes to get educated, improve the training conditions for those that are already attending universities, and initiate a new culture and attitude towards student-athletes in general. This game changing vision is not going to happen without involvement of local communities. It's a team work. Helping others to succeed by sharing, mentoring, or sponsoring is contagious. We are all responsible to teach these young people how to give back to the society. They will soon become doctors, scientists, engineers, lawyers, teachers, entrepreneurs, or politicians. They might become... you.
Your contribution is vital to continue our important work, because we can only succeed thanks to the generosity of supporters like you!
We are creating the next generation of leaders
There are many benefits of being involved in competitive team environment. It teaches young people valuable lifelong skills, such as competitiveness, self discipline, accountability, teamwork, prioritising, and goal setting. This is an amazing learning opportunity players get only with college tennis. Many companies value graduating students that have lived through this experience. Student athletes tend to be more resistant when performing under the pressure, more adaptive to new environments and flexible to solve problems.
Those are just few of many reasons why this project could in principle easily become the most valuable tennis competition. Now, you should better understand how University Tennis League is more than just a competition. Supporting us is investing in our future.
