Last week, Mission Elite presented the Elite Team members and the Mission Elite staff with their awards handed out at the end of each year. In 2021, Mission Elite further proved that hard work pays off; justified by the immense success within the company, expanding into NCAA recruiting, apparel, and the launch of the all-in-one Tennis University program. Meanwhile, on court, the Elite Team athletes traveled across the globe, competing in many pro tournaments, further demonstrating their world-class abilities. On behalf of Mission Elite, we would like to thank everyone for their vital part in making 2021 a year to remember and look forward to how we can exceed our expectations for 2022!
