Transitions_LifeCare_-_color_50-2The 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 $250,000 for Transitions LifeCare and $58,000 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 2019 Charity Classic was held on Friday, September 13th and had 110 participants and many volunteers.  Creative baskets were donated by many Central USTA teams!  Thanks to the support of our community we raised $3,000 for WWTA Youth Scholarships and just over $10,000 for Transitions LifeCare!  If you are interested in donating baskets for the raffle, silent auction items, or becoming a cash sponsor for 2020,  please contact Laura.  Click here to register for the event – and don’t forget, space is limited and we sell out every year! 2020 date TBD!

Only team registrations can be accepted, and there is no rain date – event is on rain or shine.
