Starting Monday evening on April 25, hundreds of lawyers, doctors, judges and others will compete in both adult and junior singles, doubles and mixed doubles tennis draws, with the finals matches being held on Sunday, May 1 to see who is king of the court. All matches will be held at Lorenzi Racquet Club, located at 3075 W. Washington Ave. to raise funds for the Marty Hennessy Inspiring Children Foundation. Entrance is free to the public. The foundation has raised more than $2 million to help at-risk youth including 85 children who have received college scholarships.
The Physicians and Barristers Ball Charity Tennis Classic Tournament was founded in 2012 to get the active tennis players from the legal community involved with a fun and exciting event that raises awareness and funds for the Marty Hennessy Inspiring Children Foundation. The Marty Hennessey Inspiring Children Foundation was started more than 10 years ago by Ryan Wolfington and Marty Hennessey. With the support of entertainment legend Tony Bennett and Andre Agassi’s father Mike, as well as the top doubles team in the world Bob and Mike Bryan, the foundation has raised more than $2 million to help hundreds of at risk youth annually. The Foundation’s goal is to provide the ultimate environment for a child to become their best in all areas of their life. This includes excellence in academics, athletics, inter-personal skills and leadership. To learn more, visit www.InspiringChildren.net.
