Serve Your Skin Tennis Tournament

IMPACT Melanoma is excited to spread awareness and education to athletes and tennis communities through a unique event – “Serve Your Skin” (SYS) – a collaborative, nation-wide tennis tournament. The tournaments will take place at colleges and universities across the country at various dates throughout the year. Through this exciting event, the recreational, collegiate, and professional tennis communities will share sun safety tips and alert players to protect their skin while playing their sports outside. This tournament will raise funds to support IMPACT Melanoma’s efforts to bring sunscreen dispensers, education, and necessary shade to areas of social and health injustice. 

Meet the Founders of Serve Your Skin

The idea for this tournament came from M.D. Candidate Georgina Sellyn from Vanderbilt University and Sarah Millan, Resident at George Washington University, both with a passion for tennis and educating their communities on skin health safety on and off the court. We’re very excited to be hosting this brand new campaign alongside Georgina and Sarah so please join us in welcoming them to the IMPACT Melanoma Serve Your Skin Team!
