Mercy Academy has teamed up with Teleperformance for sponsorship of its summer showcase, displaying the talents of the best high school girls basketball players in the area.
The showcase will run from June 13-June 15 at Mercy with teams from all over Kentucky, as well as Princeton from Ohio.
“We are a very people-centric organization at Teleperformance,” said site director Ray Levitzki on the company that is the leading global outsource provider connecting brands with their customers via technical support, customer acquisition, digital solutions, and more. “We truly believe in the saying ‘Transforming passion into excellence’. Where better do you see that than in sports?”
Teleperformance will look to make a greater impact in the Louisville sports community, and the Mercy showcase is one of the stops.
“We are a big supporter of our youth and the community,” added Levitzki. “While we are relatively new in Louisville, and are becoming more active, we were very excited to hear about the Mercy summer basketball camp and the opportunity to support it. It is a wonderful function and we couldn’t be more excited and proud to be a part of it.”
The schedule is below. Morning games begin at 9 a.m.; final games begin at 9:50 p.m. All games are open to the public upon paid admission.
