“We hope to spur more interest in tennis in youth in more communities, says Gemeral Berry, Jr., committee chair. “We’re also thrilled to have Yvonne and Chad in our Celeb Match. This demonstrates wide support for our program. It’s for a good cause and folks attending should have plenty fun seeing their favorite celebs play.”

The ”New School vs. Old School” Match is scheduled to return. “It pits two young players against two very old dudes,” Berry says.

The charity event is organized by Camp Wisdom UMC, and primarily supports its Youth Outreach.
