Disney Celebrity Tennis Event

Updated: 04 Sep 2013 02:21:18 AM

Walt Disney World Resort will be hosting a high-profile celebrity tennis event this year.

American tennis stars and grand slam champions Andy Roddick and Venus Williams will headline Mylan WTT Smash Hits, which will be held on the evening of November 17th.

Additional tennis pros should be announced shortly.

Past pro participants have included all-time greats like Martina Navratilova, Jimmy Connors, John McEnroe, and Serena Williams.

Celebrity Hosts

Celebrity hosts Sir Elton John and Billie Jean King will be on hand to keep the crowd entertained at what is sure to be a treat for any tennis fan.

At 6:00pm, the two hosts will each lead a group of pros to play a team tournament against one another.

Over the past 20 years, John and King have split their wins with 10 each.

2013 marks the 21st year of Smash Hits, which raises money for the Elton John AIDs Foundation (EJAF) and various other AIDs charities, and has helped raise $11.5 million for the cause.

Tickets

Tickets for the event go on sale on September 9th at 10 am ET.

General admission tickets start from $50.00 and go up to $125.00 and can be purchased either from the event website or Ticketmaster.

This year will mark the second time that Orlando has hosted Smash Hits, and organizers hope to maintain the momentum of last year’s record-breaking event.

The evening will kick off at 4:30pm with a VIP reception and charity auctions.
