To further its existing commitment to youth basketball, ZTE USA, the fourth largest smartphone manufacturer in the U.S. and second largest in the no-contract market*, today announced its “Basketball Clinic Series” in Las Vegas. This weekend basketball greats such as Spud Webb, Del Harris, and Nick Van Exel will participate in free clinics helping coach young players, ranging from ages five to 18, and teaching them skills they can use both on and off the court.
The clinics, which will take place the mornings of July 18 and 19 at the Walnut Community Center from 9 to 11 am, are open to the first 50 participants, based on those who register online on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants will receive a courtesy “ZTE Summer Series” t-shirt, opportunities for photos and autographs with the respective basketball celebrities, and the ability to participate in phone giveaways. Various ZTE products – including the recently announced Axon, Spro 2 Smart Projector and Grand X Max± smartphone – will also be featured in the development sessions at these clinics.
“Our investment in youth basketball is significant,” said Lixin Cheng, chairman and CEO of ZTE USA. “These players will be the future of basketball and future role models for tomorrow’s youth. It is our duty to help them become not only the best basketball players, but also the best people they can be in the future. ZTE’s slogan, ‘Tomorrow Never Waits,’ pertains to both technology and our own personal preparation in all areas of life.”
Individuals can register for the clinics at www.ZTESummerSeries.com. Space is limited and will be prioritized on a first-come, first-served basis.
