The annual WWTA Charity Tennis Classic is now being held in conjunction with the Atlantic Tire Championships, an ATP Pro Challenger Circuit event. Funds from the event are donated to Transitions LifeCare (formerly Hospice of Wake County) and used for WWTA scholarships. To date, WWTA has raised over $210,000 for Hospice of Wake County and $53,000 WWTA scholarships for area youth.
The Charity Classic Tournament is an annual ladies doubles event taking place in September. Since this event is held in conjunction with the Atlantic Tire Championships, this means you may be playing on some of the same courts that professional players have been on. Join us for a morning of fun tennis, all while raising money for Transitions LifeCare. Your $130 team registration includes: a light breakfast, beverages, Atlantic Tire Championship tickets and a lunch catered by Tribeca Tavern. We’ll be doing a silent auction and raffle baskets so bring your checkbook!
The 2018 Charity Classic was held on Wednesday, September 12th and we raised $11,000 for Transitions LifeCare and another $3,000 for WWTA youth scholarships. For 2019, ff you are interested in donating baskets for the raffle, silent auction items, or becoming a cash sponsor, please contact Laura.
Unfortunately only team registrations can be accepted, and there is no rain date – event is on rain or shine.
