The USTA Eastern Long Island Region will join with United Way of Long Island to host the Second Annual Club & Corporate Tennis Challenge, raising funds for recreational and rehabilitative tennis programs for returning military personnel and their families. The fundraiser/tennis tournament will take place Sunday, Dec. 9 from 4:00 p.m-7:00 p.m. at Port Washington Tennis Academy, located at 100 Harbor Road in Port Washington, NY 11050.
The Club & Corporate Tennis Challenge is open to tennis players of all ranks and representing companies, corporations, tennis clubs or any other organization. Teams of 10 players will compete, with the winning teams in each category receiving a prize.
The event features a one-and-a-half-hour tennis clinic plus tri-level round robin (6.0, 7.5-8.0, 8.5-9.0), buffet dinner, awards ceremony, gifts and prizes. The cost is $75 per player or $500 per team of 10 (including at least two women), as long as all 10 sign up together. Space is limited, so please register by November 15th.
“We used the proceeds from our first Tennis Challenge fundraiser last year to provide tennis clinics for the children of military veterans in Freeport,” said Marian Morris, event chair. “We are looking forward to being able to provide additional kids’ tennis clinics this year and we encourage tennis clubs and corporations to take up the challenge with us this December.”
