Green Racquets Classic

Event Summary

Green Racquets, Inc. is a nonprofit organization designed to promote recreational opportunities (specifically tennis) to both juniors and adults in various formats. These opportunities include but are not limited to, instruction, organized competition setting, and/ or events that benefit communities and potentially local organizations.

The inaugural Green Racquets Classic was held at the West Lake Country Club in Augusta, GA. Presented by Textron Specialized Vehicles, the event featured 17 Grand-Slam Winner, Gigi Fernandez and her “Gigi Method” of doubles instruction, along with tennis celebrity MC, The Koz – David Kozlowski. The celebrity tennis event was a smashing success, and proceeds benefited the United Way of the CSRA.

 

We are truly excited to announce the Second Annual Green Racquets Classic at the beautiful Reserve Club in Aiken, South Carolina August 10- 11th, 2018 with a return trip to the CSRA for The Koz!

We are so excited to have this great player here to provide instructional support for your game.
