Our Commitment to Community Engagement and Support
Richmond Tennis Association
Richmond Tennis Association (RTA) is one of the oldest and most successful non-profit tennis organizations in the United States. Recognized as a top community organization by both the USTA and USTA/Mid-Atlantic Section, the RTA operates a variety of tennis programs and events throughout the year for tennis players of all ages and abilities.
Irv Cantor began his involvement with RTA in the 70s. While in law school, he spent his summers working for RTA, running the many tournaments held at the Byrd Park Tennis Courts. Now that Irv has more time to give back to the community, he joined the RTA Board in 2022 as a dedicated committee member.

The Richmond Tennis Association in partnership with the City of Richmond offers a free tennis program for youth who might otherwise not be exposed to the game. The Program is held at Byrd Park and led by RTA-selected tennis instructor, James Skinner.

BIAV is a statewide, primary source of information and personal support for individuals, families, and professionals whose lives have been impacted by brain injury. CGBB has been an active participant and sponsor of the Brain Injury Association of Virginia for years and is committed to fighting for brain injury clients.

CGBB & Richmond Animal Care and Control
On May 5th, Yam Chop spent the day with our CGBB team and stole all of our hearts! Through Richmond Animal Care and Control’s Casual Friday Foster program, businesses have the opportunity to foster a shelter dog or cat at their office and give these animals a much-needed break from the shelter. Yam Chop is a two-year-old sweetheart who had the absolute best time hanging out with our team for the day and proved that she would make the perfect addition to someone’s family. A few days after her return to RACC, Yam Chop was adopted and went home with her forever family!
If you are interested in the RACC Casual Friday program, email Robin.yo[email protected] to sign up to host a RACC dog or cat at your office.
