About supersisters

Founded in 1978, supersisters™ began as a publisher of a baseball-type trading card-series featuring American women of achievement and quickly became known as an innovative educational brand in women’s and girl’s empowerment.

The original groundbreaking supersisters™ product included a set of 72 collectible trading cards – intended as a way for youth to learn about the accomplishments of established women leaders across a variety of professional pursuits as varied as sports, science, entertainment, engineering, politics, and powerful corporate roles – in a fun and accessible format – an opportunity that four decades ago was missing from much of mainstream media, marketing, toys, and textbooks. Represented on the cards (through photos, biographies, and personal quotes of the permissioned participants) were living, American women who had made distinguished contributions in their professional fields. 

Fueled by demand from fans, supersisters™ is offering a limited-edition reprint of the uncut poster featuring the complete set of original 72 supersisters™ cards (circa 1979). The two-sided 24in x 36in poster celebrates the amazing contributions of 72 women who shattered glass ceilings in the 1970’s and features each of the original 72 supersisters™ card images on the front and the corresponding biography of the featured supersister on the back. 

Proceeds from the current poster and supersisters™ apparel sales will continue to help fund relaunch efforts for another generation of supersisters.

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY

June is in bloom now and summer is too. We’re forging ahead with our lives some of us vaccinated some of us not but we’re all in a much better sure in 2021 than we were in 2020! We want Father’s Day to be special and The Love & Love Tennis Foundation wants to wish all father’s the best of all things that make a father proud.

Our Junior Summer Tennis Camp started June 14 and the Sessions will go through August. The Love & Love Tennis Foundation has partnered with Rhenn Ramirez and the Golden Feather Foundation at Woodhaven Country Club in Palm Desert and we are excited to bring tennis to the kids who want to learn how to play.  The Foundation would like to thank those who have sponsored kids for our summer tennis camps; WTA Charities for their “Original 9”, Rum Chata, Tory Fretz and Dr. Ann Lebedeff.

The Love & Love Tennis Foundation is also working with the Desert Recreation District and has scheduled free tennis clinics for kids ages 6-12 to enjoy an introduction to tennis every Fridays from 8:30am – 9:30am at Palm Desert Civic Center Courts. We hope to run these free clinics thru the summer and also in other locations throughout the Coachella Valley. We are slowly but surely continuing to reach out to more kids and provide more opportunities for the kids to play tennis.

We know the BNP is coming to town in October and we hope to have the dates confirmed soon. We are hopeful that we will be able to host the Love & Love Tennis Foundation Annalee Thurston Awards Reception and will let you know if this is at all possible.

Please have a wonderful summer and HAPPY FATHER’S DAY.

Be in touch soon!
