Tonya "The Oracle" Carter
Visionary | Special Advisor
Having reintroduced LWH founder, Amber Batchelor to the game of basketball, Tonya Carter is the catalyst for the LWH movement. She was introduced to the game by her father, and enjoyed playing basketball throughout her youth on the courts of NYC – often as the only girl. She played organized basketball in high school and at the collegiate level, and also in various NYC leagues and tournaments. As someone who spent her formative years playing basketball with boys, Tonya is especially pleased to see the game's remarkable growth in popularity among young women. While Tonya is an active participant in many sports, basketball remains her first love. Seeing young girls discover the same love continues to make her smile.
