What’s in YOUR Bag?

Show us what you’ve got . . . in your tennis bag, that is! We are partnering with Holabird Sports to bring you a fun contest during the 2013 US Open. Here’s the scoop:

  • Using Instagram, record a 15-second Bag Check video (click here for an example)
  • Post it using hashtags #usopenaces and #holabirdsports
  • Share the video to Twitter using hashtags #usopenaces and #holabirdsports

All video submissions will be entered into the drawing for the Grand Prize, a Wilson US Open tennis bag and Wilson tennis racquet of your choice, courtesy of Holabird.

The contest runs Monday, August 26, 2013 – Monday, September 9, 2013. The deadline for video submissions is September 9, 2013, 11:59pm Eastern Daylight Time. The winner will be announced on Monday, September 16, 2013.

The contest is open to entrants of all ages, so Tennis Parents, we hope you’ll get in on the fun, too!

And, if you see me or my sidekick, Melanie Rubin, around the grounds of the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, please stop and say hi. We’ll be the ones sporting the ParentingAces gear!

And the Winner Is . . .

Happy First Birthday to ParentingAces!  Hard to believe I’ve been writing and sharing with y’all for an entire year!  A huge thank-you to those of you who read my ramblings, share them with your tennis buddies, and take the time to comment with your own experiences – I truly value each and every one of you.

And the winner of the Birthday Contest – and a $50 gift card from my friends at Holabird Sports – is . . .

<Drumroll please>
