Get a Free Kastles' Camo Shirt
on Military Night July 18
Join the defending WTT champion Washington Kastles as they pay tribute to active duty military, veterans, and their families on Wednesday night - all leading up to the team's match against the 2011 Western Conference finalist Sacramento Capitals.
The first 1,000 fans through the gates at Kastles Stadium at The Wharf will receive a complimentary Kastles' Camo T-shirt, courtesy of GEICO. Gates open at 5:15 pm, with first serve scheduled for 7 pm.
In support of the military, the Kastles are also hosting a food drive Wednesday night. Fans are requested to bring non-perishable food items to the stadium, which will be donated to the USO.
Sergeant First Class Leigh Ann Hinton, a concert soloist in the U.S. Army, will perform the national anthem. The U.S. Color Guard will also be on hand on the Southwest Waterfront.
Don't miss the exciting activities that lead up to the Kastles vs. Capitals showdown, which will feature Sacramento's Sam Querrey, who holds a world record with 10 consecutive aces. The 24-year-old Querrey has risen from No. 106 to No. 55 since April, inching closer to returning to the Top 20, where he was ranked before undergoing elbow surgery last summer.
With Querrey in their lineup, the Capitals will be keen to avenge their 25-14 loss in DC last season. Querrey is 3-0 lifetime on tour against Kastles' closer Bobby Reynolds in singles, but he hasn't had as much luck against the Washington men in doubles, losing four of five meetings with Leander Paes and two of three with Reynolds.
Tickets to the Kastles vs. Capitals on Military Night start at only $30 and are available now on Ticketmaster.com. Get them now, and then arrive at Kastles Stadium at 5:15 pm Wednesday to secure a Kastles' Camo T-shirt, courtesy of GEICO.
