This is an incredible, not-to-be missed opportunity to kick-off the season and do good! Enjoy cocktails, play or do both with old friends and new, for this amazing cause to help kids in need gain confidence, life skills and education in a program centered around tennis.

The fun begins with a pre-tournament cocktail party on Friday, May 2nd at The Country Club of Darien featuring special guest speakers from the program and an exciting Live Auction emceed by local tennis enthusiast and philanthropist, Jane Pelley.  The cocktail party is included in the $280 team entry fee, with additional tickets available for $60 per person to any non-player guests interested in supporting this great cause.

The 12th annual Play in May tournament, will take place on Saturday, May 3rd at clubs throughout Fairfield County culminating with a lunch and finals matches to be played at the Tokeneke Club in Men’s class A, B, and 55+ and Women’s A (4.5+), B (4.0) and C (3.5 and below).  All proceeds benefit Norwalk Grassroots Tennis (NGT),  a nonprofit whose mission is to help children from low-income families through tennis, education, life skills and leadership programs. Last year’s event saw over 90 teams competing and draws filled up fast so players are encouraged to register early.

All services are provided at no cost to the child and are funded through donations and fundraisers like the Play in May event which has raised nearly $600,000 for the charity to date.  To register your team, purchase cocktail party tickets or make a donation, visit http://norwalkgrassrootstennis.org.  For more information about the event contact Ali Shay at akaighnshay@gmail.com.

Hope you can make it, see you there!
