Letsmove Tennis: Agassi, Graf, and Michelle Obama



Michelle Obama
Along with a few cameos by Agassi and Steffi Graf, are promoting the "Let's Move!" program here in Washington DC. I recognized these indoor courts as I've played on them quite a few times this winter as well in Georgetown.

Also at the White House south lawn last summer...
During the Legg Mason tournament in DC, kids and pro players were invited to the White House to play some mini tennis.  For more info, check out the letsmove.gov initative to fight childhood obesity.

MS Charity Event: June 18, 2011

With support from USTA tennis and KB-Tennis.com, a charity tennis event and fundraiser has been announced. Proceeds will go toward to helping find a cure for MS (Multiple Sclerosis) in the Washington DC area.

The National MS Society has offered a lot of volunteers and little tennis players to join the event. Over 200 kids and adults are expected for this large tennis event.

Needed: Large Tennis Venue/Facilities

We are still looking to formalize a location and want to get additional sponsors who would like to contribute to this cause.
