Washington Kastles Charity Classic Set for July 22nd
Congressmen, Media, Other Athletes Join Kastles for a Great Cause
Since 2012, Congressmen, Cabinet members, White House administration officials and other leaders from government, business, sports and media have dusted off their tennis racquets to take part in the Washington Kastles Charity Classic.
It is always a memorable night that raises money for a group of great charities, and we want YOU to be there! Join us Wednesday, July 22 at 7 pm for the fourth-annual Kastles Charity Classic at Kastles Stadium at the Smith Center. Great seats go are on sale now at Ticketmaster.com.
Besides brushing backhands with fellow leaders from the nation's capital, Kastles Charity Classic players will be teammates (and opponents) with the five-time World TeamTennis champion Washington Kastles. All Kastles Charity Classic participants -- including Kastles players -- will represent either Team Stars or Team Stripes.
Among the Kastles scheduled to compete are 15-time Grand Slam champion Leander Paes, big-serving American star Sam Querrey, Top 25 doubles player Anastasia Rodionova, and Coach Murphy Jensen, who won the 1993 French Open doubles title. Other Kastles Charity Classic participants will be announced on this page in the coming weeks.
The Kastles' core mission is giving back to the D.C. community, and the Kastles Charity Classic is one of the team's signature events. Since the Kastles' founding in 2008, the franchise has worked with hundreds of local charities and made contributions totaling more than $1 million in the form of cash donations, match tickets and new tennis racquets for children.
All ticket proceeds from the Kastles Charity Classic go to charity. In 2014, the event's charity beneficiaries were Best Buddies, Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), DC Public Education Fund and Food & Friends. Charitable partners for 2015 will be announced soon.
Last year's Kastles Charity Classic competitors included 14 members of Congress split virtually evenly from both sides of the aisle. They were joined by former Director of the National Economic Council Gene Sperling, NFL players such as Washington Redskins Hall-of-Famer Darrell Green, and TV personalities Bret Baier and Jonathan Karl.
