NIL For Arkansas Tennis

How ‘bout those Tennis Hogs?!? They took quite a step forward this year with wins over Top 25 programs Auburn, Florida and Texas A&M. Coach Jay is no doubt building a monster on The Hill, but he needs our help to attract the best talent and take it to the next level.  

You may be aware there are only 4.5 scholarship equivalents available for our Men’s Tennis program which has 10 roster spots. A few of us have spent the last two month learning about the NIL process with our friends at Arkansas Edge, the official NIL Collective for the Arkansas Razorbacks. It turns out contributions to NIL can be used like Scholarship Equivalents to help student-athletes not on scholarship afford the cost of attendance! 

We are asking you to consider a contribution byjoining the Fan Membership Clubwith Arkansas Edge. You can designate the funds to go to the Men’s Tennis program when you sign up! The NIL monies we raise will help provide more Men’s Tennis student-athletes the ability to attend the University of Arkansas “on scholarship”. Our goal is to raise $100,000, and we have already raise over $27,000! Please consider how you can contribute to the success of our Men’s Tennis team! 

Note: A tax-deductible contributon option exists through the BPS Foundation with Arkansas Edge, however, tax-deductible donations can only go to fund NIL opportunities for American student-athletes. However, Fan Membership Club dues (no tax benefits) provide the flexibility necessary to provide NIL opportunities to ANY student-athlete, even international student-athletes. As you are likely aware, many Tennis student-athletes are international-born, so we ask that you give in a way that provides the flexibility needed to fund NIL opportunities for these student-athletes. Both require the student-athletes to earn their NIL compensation working with non-profit and other community organizations. 

Thank you so much for your help!
