Tennis Hall of Famer John McEnroe will be joined by his brother, Patrick McEnroe, as well as other all-time tennis greats including Lindsay Davenport, Chris Evertand Martina Navratilova at Sportime in Amagansett for the Johnny Mac Tennis Project’s (JMTP) Fourth Annual Pro-Am in the Hamptons on Saturday, August 25. Amateur players will be paired with McEnroe Academy and Sportime professionals for a chance to face-off against the tennis legends.
The event will include seven rounds of pro-am doubles play, food and drink and silent and live auctions, all to raise funds to support JMTP programs that change young lives by removing the economic and social barriers to success through tennis.
“There should be no barrier to a future champion coming from New York City, just like I did.” John McEnroe said in a release about the event. “We’re proud that we have been able to turn this annual Hamptons event into one of the largest pro-am events in the world, and this year, again, we expect to host 128 players — tennis legends, former pros and college stars, talented amateurs and recreational players — all enjoying a fun, competitive day of tennis together in support of a worthy cause.”
An after party will be held at 8 p.m. at a private residence in Amagansett. Visit jmtpny.org for tickets and information.
