6th Annual Tennis With The Stars Returns to Omni Rancho Las Palmas March 10, 2020
Event will benefit the Elina Svitolina Foundation; 7 star players highlight lineup
The 6th Annual Tennis With The Stars celebrity exhibition has announced it will return to the Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort and Spa on March 10th, 2020. The event will benefit the Elina Svitolina Foundation, and is supported by Desert Champions, LLC.
Elina Svitolina, Gael Monfils, Victoria Azarenka, Frances Tiafoe, Reilly Opelka, Luke Jensen and Murphy Jensen are confirmed participants, with more announcements to be made soon. The group includes five players ranked in the top 50, former major champions in both singles and doubles, as well as two American rising stars.
Svitolina, currently ranked no. 6 in the world, launched the Elina Svitolina Foundation in March of 2019. The mission of the foundation is to encourage children, through the sport of tennis, to learn the values of hard work, self-discipline and the importance of giving 100% every day in life. The foundation will help create opportunities through scholarships, after school programs, camps and special events.
"Elina is very excited to participate in this year's Tennis with the Stars at the beautiful Omni Rancho Las Palmas," said Tim Stallard, Executive Director of the Elina Svitolina Foundation. "We greatly appreciate the support from Cliff Drysdale Tennis and Desert Champions for the Elina Svitolina Foundation. We are currently supporting youth programs in Ukraine and the United States through the Bush ACE Outreach Program.”
The event schedule kicks off Tuesday afternoon with a pro-am featuring eight pro stars alongside amateur players, a king of the court session, meet and greet with the stars and much more. Tickets are available now in limited capacities.
Tennis With The Stars has been hosted at Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort and Spa for each of the last six years, and has benefitted a number of local and national non-profits. Star players and celebrities have come together to kick off one of the most popular weeks on the tennis calendar, Indian Wells.
