Return Stronger, Together: Donation program launched in North America

13 October 2020

TORRANCE, CA – Yonex Corp. is proud to announce the Naomi Osaka Limited Edition EZONE Buy One, Give One program that helps give back to local tennis communities in North America.

For every Limited Edition EZONE racquet purchased*, Yonex will donate a racquet to an organization focused on keeping the next generation active through the sport of tennis.

To kick off the campaign, Yonex teamed up with Naomi and supplied racquets to Play Academy with Naomi Osaka (PANO). PANO is a grassroots sports program that aims to help level the playing field by changing the game for girls.

"I really felt like it was important to help people during these difficult times,” said 3-time Grand Slam Champion Naomi Osaka.

Nearly 50 organizations in North America will be recipients of this charitable gift.

The Limited Edition EZONE launched during Naomi’s run to her 2nd US Open title. Her winning racquet features a white base with gold and silver accents and is available at participating retailers.

*Due to limited quantities being available, up to 1,000 racquets will be donated.
