JMTP Benefit Night next Monday July 22nd in NYC!

jmpt logoCome out to SPORTIME Randall’s Island for two special nights of star-studded Mylan World TeamTennis action this July! Both evenings will raise funds for the Johnny Mac Tennis Project, a charitable foundation established by John McEnroe and SPORTIME to raise money to advance youth tennis in the NY Metropolitan area. Since September of 2011, JMTP has helped fund programs that have provided students at local public and charter schools, including P.S. 57, P.S. 88, P.S. 112, P.S. 96, Manhattan East School for the Arts & Academics, the Renaissance School of the Arts and Hyde Leadership Charter School, with free weekly tennis clinics for 25-40 children per day. The Johnny Mac Tennis Project has funded over $1.0 million in scholarships and no cost programming to young players in NYC and its communities.

On July 22, come see Johnny Mac matched up against fellow Hall of Famer, former world #1 and U.S. Davis Cup captain, Jim Courier when the NY Sportimes face off against the visiting Texas Wild. WTT Co-Founder Billie Jean King will be our special non-playing guest that evening, as we celebrate the upcoming 40th anniversary of her world changing “battle of the sexes” victory over Bobby Riggs.

On July 23, the two-time WTT defending champions Washington Kastles invade Randall’s Island with former NY Sportime and 2013 Hall of Fame inductee Martina Hingis to compete in what is sure to be an important end-of-season matchup.
