Athletes across America are playing pink this month and all for a good cause. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and it’s a great time to show support by adding a touch of pink to the court. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy or dramatic and Tennis Express has a wide selection to choose from. Likewise, if you’re looking for a new pair of pink tennis shoes, pink apparel, or even pink overgrips, we’ve got the best pink gear, in stock and ready to ship.
In addition to playing pink, tennis clubs and facilities are organizing fundraisers to raise awareness about early detection. Willow Fork Country Club in Houston, TX hosted a Pretty in Pink tennis and golf tournament where the proceeds went to a local non-profit that provides screening and treatment plans to underprivileged women.
