(NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C.) — NEWS: Professional Tennis Player Madison Keys and her Kindness Wins foundation to reveal renovated tennis courts in North Charleston ahead of the 2023 Credit One Charleston Open. After the unveiling, youth in attendance will participate in a tennis clinic before a Q&A with Madison. All media are cordially invited to the unveiling of the courts on April 3, 2023 from 4-5 p.m. EDT at the JV Morris Tennis Center at 103 North Blvd, North Charleston, SC 29405.
Last September, 2019 Charleston Open Champion Madison Keys and her foundation Kindness Wins held a social media fundraiser on its annual “Kindness Wins Day” to raise money for community courts in need. With donations from the Credit One Charleston Open, WTA Charities, her fellow tennis champions and fans around the world, Madison decided she wanted to use funds to give back to the community of Charleston, a city she holds close to her heart.
This first project is being done in partnership with the USTA South Carolina, who regularly use the four courts at the JV Morris Tennis Center to provide tennis clinics to underserved youth in the North Charleston area. The city has recently renovated two of the four courts and will unveil the Kindness Wins Courts to continue the mission of getting more youth in the community involved in tennis.
