Team MGS Sponsorship Kickoff Ceremony Recap

On Sunday, October 29th, My Game Solutions hosted a kickoff ceremony to celebrate our newly-sponsored athletes in Team MGS. The event took place at the Murray Hill Tennis & Fitness Center in New Providence, New Jersey.  Despite some really nasty weather, all of the athletes and their families came out and participated in the event.

The event began with the sponsored athletes participating in some drills and icebreaker sessions on court. As they were enjoying the fun and cementing a bond with their fellow MGS team members, all athletes were pulled away individually for one-on-one interviews to discuss their tennis-playing career, and their excitement of being a sponsored athletes for My Game Solutions.

Meanwhile, parents listened to a presentation conducted my MGS staff discussing the company’s history, the MGS app (available now for download on App Store and Google Play), as well as the future direction of the company and the sponsorship program.  As the presentation concluded, the kids rejoined the group and everyone took a break to enjoy pizza and other light refreshments.

Once everyone reconvened, Manuel Cavaco and Francisco Dias, leaders of the newly-minted MGS Tennis Academy, spoke more in-depth about the opportunities available for the athletes to become part of the academy to improve their game. We saved the best part for last. The final portion of the event saw each athlete come up one-by-one to receive all of their official Team MGS apparel and gear. Here are the new members of Team MGS:

Little Mo Internationals NYC Recap

My Game Solutions is proud to be an official sponsor for the Little Mo Internationals in Queens, NY on August 21-26! The week-long tournament brought together some of the most talented youth tennis players aged 8-13 from all over the world!

The event began on Monday with families coming in from all over the world to exchange gifts on the first day and participate in several clinics to get warmed up for the actual tournament.  The day concluded with a parade through historic West Side Tennis Club and Forest Hills Stadium as the players waved flags from their respective countries.

Over 150 players from all over the world represented at Little Mo NYC

The official matches began on Tuesday morning. Little Mo features several divisions of competition for singles players from age 8 to 13, as well as traditional doubles and mixed doubles in all age groups.  In addition to the awards for the individual age group championships, two of the young athletes are competing for the legendary “Little Mo Slam”, a six-foot trophy awarded to any of the athletes that manage to win all three of the Little Mo International tournaments in one year (California, New York, Florida, respectively).  Finally, aside from trophies, players could be awarded with “Little Mo Coins” which were awarded to them for demonstrating good character and sportsmanship on the court. These coins could later be redeemed for awesome prizes!

As an official sponsor, My Game Solutions had a table prominently displayed at the event. We had a smorgasbord of giveaways including towels, sunglasses, water bottles, clear drawstring bags, hand fans, and the most popular item by far — caps that gave participants some relief from the heat.  People at the tournament had to spin a wheel located at our table to win prizes, and many of the kids wanted to keep spinning even after they already won!IMG_5353

Overall, the tournament was amazing and everybody in attendance had a great time.  Thanks to the team from Maureen Connolly Brinker Tennis Foundation– from the board members, event staff, and the referees and line judges for hosting a great event!

Catch the My Game Solutions team at the Little Mo Nationals in Austin, Texas on September 29- October 2!
