2013 Washington Kastles Charity Classic
Tickets Now On Sale for $10 at Ticketmaster.com

The 2013 Washington Kastles Charity Classic July 18 is heating up!

For the second straight summer, politicians, media elite, Washington Kastles players and other DC celebrities will come together at Kastles Stadium for a memorable team tennis match to see who will dominate on the court, proving along the way that we can all come together for a good cause!

Meet the Press moderator David Gregory joins FOX News host Bret Baier and ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl on the tennis court to match serves (instead of words and wits) against some of our favorite DC politicos, including Congressional Tennis Caucus Co-Chairs, Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) and Congressman Tim Bishop (D-NY); Congressman Jim Costa (D-CA), former Senator John Breaux (D-LA) and Ambassador Dino Djalal (Indonesia).

Returning for the second straight season is D.C. United coach Ben Olsen, who led Team Stars to a narrow 41-39 win over Team Stripes in the 2012 Washington Kastles Charity Classic.

Olsen's coaching colleague, Murphy Jensen, is also participating, as are four players from the three-time Mylan WTT champion Kastles: former World No. 1 Martina Hingis, 13-time Grand Slam champion Leander Paes, 2012 WTT Male MVP Bobby Reynolds and last season's leading mixed doubles player, Anastasia Rodionova.

Stay tuned for more player announcements in the lead-up to July 18. You won't want to wait until match day to secure your seats. General admission tickets are just $10 and 100% of proceeds go to charity! Guarantee your place at Kastles Stadium by purchasing your tickets now at Ticketmaster.com.
