Each year some of the top tennis players in the nation participate in Eric Butorac’s “Minnesota Tennis Challenge.” More than just another tournament, proceeds raised from this event go directly to supporting four important organizations: St. Paul Urban Tennis, the Fred Wells Tennis and Education Center , Inner City Tennis and the Rochester Boys and Girls Club. Together these charities are making a difference in the lives of youth ages 5-18 in the greater Twin Cities area.
This year’s talent features Bob and Mike Bryan, who recently surpassed Pam Shriver and Martina Navratilova as the team with the most titles won ever, male or female. Their most recent wins include being crowned US Open Champions in New York and Olympic Gold Medalists at the 2012 London Games.
However, they’ll be looking for redemption on November 17th as Butorac and his parter recently upset the Bryans at the Shanghai Rolex Masters, a major victory in the career of our homegrown talent. Can he do it again? Join us at the MN Tennis Challenge to find out! We’ll be celebrating a great cause no matter the outcome.
