COURT 16 + ADIDAS + HORIZONS COME TOGETHER
On Saturday, August 28th, Court 16, adidas, and Horizons joined forces to establish tennis scholarships for 25 students from Brooklyn Friends School. Inspired to look at tennis from a different point of view, and how sports can serve as a vehicle for positivity and change, together adidas and Pharrell Williams worked in partnership with Court 16 and Horizons Brooklyn Friends to develop a robust scholarship program to introduce the game that lasts a lifetime. True to the spirit of Pharrell Williams and adidas’ commitment to change lives through sport, the ambition of the programming is to provide a platform for New York.
“This robust tennis experience will foster the cultivation of values and benefits rooted in tennis that these 25 children will benefit from their entire lives: discipline, fair play, focus, self-assurance, and an active, healthy lifestyle – this includes a healthy mind."
- Anthony Evrard, Court 16 Founder
On Sunday, October 29th, we kicked off our inaugural class for the Horizons Program. Filled with swings, smiles, and amazing adidas gear, families from Horizons Brooklyn Friends got off to an incredible start. Each Sunday we see 25 Horizons students progress on the court and bond off the court; our special tennis program runs throughout our season in 2018 and we are already making connections that will last a lifetime!
