By: SPORTIME NY
Participants will compete in a round-robin tournament alongside former WTA and ATP Tour professionals, current and former Division I College players, and top John McEnroe Tennis Academy coaches. Player spots start at $2,500. Guests can bid on exclusive items and experiences throughout the day via a curated silent auction and a live auction. Light fare and refreshments will be served. Following the Pro Am, there will be a separate after-party hosted at a local private residence featuring drinks, dinner, dancing, and a live auction. Tickets to the after party are $250, or can be purchased in conjunction with a player spot.
This event raises funds for the Johnny Mac Tennis Project (JMTP), a non-profit founded by John, which changes young lives by removing the racial, economic and social barriers to success through tennis. The JMTP Pro Am, now in its 9th year, has become the flagship summer fundraiser for the organization and has grown each year since 2015. This year's event is expected to feature 144 players, including 9 Tennis Legends, 63 pros, and 72 amateurs, making it the biggest one-day Pro Am event in the world.
"We are excited to welcome James, Andrea, Mats and Christina to the JMTP Pro AM," McEnroe said. "This is our big annual event, and our player lineup represents not just elite tennis, but elite individuals who have gone above and beyond their success on the court to grow the game of tennis, especially for young people of diverse backgrounds. Their participation will make an important day even more special."
"It is an honor to be able to take the court and have some fun with John and Patrick just before the start of the 2023 US Open," Blake said. "We want to use that attention to raise added funds for one of the best and most worthwhile causes in our sport: the Johnny Mac Tennis Project."
