Corporate Tennis Challenge Fundraiser


The US Tennis Association/Eastern-Long Island Region and United Way of Long Island are teaming up to support members of our military. Local businesses and corporations are urged to help.

On Sunday, December 4th from 4-7pm, the Region will be hosting a Corporate Tennis Challenge Fundraiser, with all proceeds to provide rehabilitative and recreational tennis programs to returning military veterans and their families.

 This fun event will pit corporation against corporation in a battle for the title of Long Island Corporate Tennis Champion, while their employees are helping improve the lives of U.S. military veterans. The Corporate Tennis Challenge will include a one-and-a-half-hour tennis clinic and tri-level round robin (levels 6.0, 7.5-8.0, and 8.5-9.0), with prizes awarded to the winning teams and players. In addition, all tennis players will enjoy a buffet dinner, t-shirt, and special gifts.

The cost per team is $500, payable to United Way of Long Island. All profits will go to the United Way of Long Island’s Military Family Assistance Project, which supports programs that serve Long Island military, reservist and National Guard personnel active in Operation Enduring Freedom and/or Operation Iraqi Freedom/New Dawn and their families.

The Corporate Tennis Challenge will take place at the Port Washington Tennis Academy, 100 Harbor Road, Port Washington, NY.
