The star-studded event will raise funds to support JMTP programs that change young lives by removing the economic and social barriers to success through tennis. “The Johnny Mac Tennis Project believes that tennis is a change agent and a sport of opportunity for kids,” says JMTP Executive Director Ron Nano. “Our Tennis Pathway to Success® initiative provides multiple, year-round opportunities, from introductory programs provided to schools and community-based organizations, which focus on cultivating healthy lifestyles and self-discipline, to world-class tournament training for aspiring college scholarship recipients and professional athletes.”

John McEnroe shares, “We have created an annual event with 128 players, which is the size of a Grand Slam draw – pretty incredible. This year, we have added Chris Evert and Pat Cash to the group, joining my brother Patrick, me, and Mats, with more players to come.
