Tennis Ball

Join Us at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel on May 8, 2015!

The Washington Tennis & Education Foundation (WTEF) will host its annual Tennis Ball fundraising event and the Round Robin tennis tournament on Friday, May 8, 2015. The Tennis Ball is our largest annual fundraising event, with all proceeds benefiting WTEF, our programs, and the student athletes we serve. WTEF is honored to have Mary and David Stevens, and Manny Ortiz and Kristin Solheim serve as Tennis Ball co-chairs.  The evening at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, you will be entertained with silent, live and mini-live auctions, a reception, the Fund a Future program, a gourmet dinner, and special recognition of this year’s honorees.  The day begins with the annual VIP Round Robin tennis tournament, held at the William H.G. FitzGerald Tennis Center on 16th Street, NW, and will feature tournament play with honorees, our sponsors, the media and others.
