Session 6:The Future of Black Tennis

July 24, 2020

Moderated By:

Deanne Chevannes

Panelists:

Dr. Dale Caldwell and Cecil Harris

UNFORTUNATELY: we do not have a recording for this session - only the powerpoint is available.

Tennis is a $5.57-billion-a-year industry. An increased presence for Blacks in tennis should not be limited to what happens on the court. There are many career paths in tennis in which Blacks are severely underrepresented. Tragically, there is a shortage of Black Players, Administrators, Coaches, and Entrepreneurs at the highest level of the sport. This panel will discuss the things that have to happen to increase the success of Black players and bring equity, inclusion, and income to Blacks in every aspect of the very lucrative tennis world.
