From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life.

The Purpose Of The Brand Isn't About The Clothes,
It's Who's Playing In It!

What Is Ascot Manor?

Ascot Manor is the first black women-owned socially conscious tennis apparel and active leisurewear brand for men and women with a “noble birthright.” As a socially conscious brand, we reinvest a portion of sales back into the business to support highly skilled under-resourced competitive junior tennis players of all ethnicities but with an initial focus on American and minority junior players.

What Is Your Goal? 

Our goal is to bring social meaning, quality, and refined style to the tennis and activewear marketplace. A remarkable combination. Not an afterthought.  A first for the category.


Sustainable & Ethical

In addition to being socially conscious, we believe in being ethical, responsible, and eco-friendly. Ascot Manor has a reliable network of sustainable suppliers, in-house experts who craft every handmade product in a safe ethical manner with minimal environmental impact. Many of our preferred suppliers provide ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX© certified ink and STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX© certified material as well as certifications from SGS Printing, and more than 60% of our products use FSC packaging made from 100% recycled materials.

We started in 2017 with an idea to change the narrative of how people view tennis apparel.  In 2019 we launched our first collection to focus on essential performance and the inception of what we call tennis leisure to embody the lifestyle of our tennis aficionados. 

Our team members have not only traveled the world but have experienced both recreational and competitive tennis players. We analyze the way youth and adult players move to optimize the performance of our pieces, functionality,  and comfortability. And no Ascot Manor piece of clothing is complete without incorporating impeccable style.

With our one-for-one model on our apparel, not only will you look your best, you will feel your best with each purchase in supporting the Ascot Manor mission. 

Ascot Manor Home 

When the game is over, and the work ends, we give you a place that feels like home! Thoughtfully designed and handpicked to culminate a members-only lifestyle of entertainment, family, and sport. Ascot Manor Home offers home decor, lifestyle goods, recipes, and more to elevate your home lifestyle eloquently. 

Corporate Responsibility

LOWER THE NET

Ascot Manor goes beyond just your one-for-one model with our Lower The Net initiative. At Ascot Manor, we're helping to bring awareness to under resourced junior players, who are exceptional tennis athletes and great students. These remarkable individuals are deserving of furthering their aspirations beyond recreational tennis but are unable to afford the cost to play on a competitive level or transition to pro.

Ascot Manor partners with coaches, tennis organizations, leagues, and schools to identify youth in severe economic situations who maintain a 3.0 or higher grade point average and sponsor specific fees in order to further the development of youth seeking to play D1 tennis, secure scholarships, and transition to ATP/WTA tours.

Ascot Manor helps sponsor some of the below-tiered cost associated with playing competitively ranked tennis. 

 

  • Local transportation determined by playing level (district, state, national)

  • Tennis academies or clinics

  • Competitive coaching

  • Equipment strings and grips only

  • Apparel

  • Tournament registration fees

#ThisIsMyTennis

Tennis has always, and will forever be considered an elite sport and we love that, just not the cost involved for youth who are at risk or in unfavorable socioeconomic levels to play competitively. This has been a factor in not only dividing the rich from the poor but the middle class and minorities who account for less than 6% in youth tennis according to the USTA. 

 

Economically disadvantaged schools and communities have fewer social and economic resources to invest in youth athletic programs than their more affluent counterparts. Families with higher disposable income can more easily afford "pay to play" athletic options for their children than lower-or middle-socioeconomic families.

-USTA

If you are a junior player seeking sponsorship you can submit a #ThisIsMyTennis video story through our athlete sponsorship form.  This Is My Tennis video stories must include why sponsorship is needed, as well as player highlights. Get creative with your video!  This is your story, and it should accurately highlight your goals, dreams, hardships, and aspirations of becoming the next tennis superstar. Coaches may also elect a junior player in need of sponsorship. Junior players, under U14, are not eligible for sponsorship. Again, all junior players elected are highly assessed, must maintain a 3.0 or higher grade point average, and have played the minimum required number of competitive matches determined by age, State and, or Country. Grades are to be submitted quarterly to remain sponsored by Ascot Manor.
