Team Tennis to Smash Cancer - Sunday, March 1, 2020
You don't want to miss this!
Welcome Tennis Players & Fans!
We have a special online auction, live right now, featuring a number of amazing signed Roger Federer items! Take home a piece of history and help us #SMASH cancer! Click here to start your bidding.
For the 6th year in a row, we will gather during the depths of mud season to play our favorite game! Enjoy a spirited day of team-centered round robin competition, as we all join together to smash balls for a great cause.
Last year, we raised over $56,000 through a combination of individual fundraising efforts, community sponsorships, a silent auction, and raffle. Our goal this year is to reach $60,000!
The Jack & Dorothy Byrne Foundation will match all gifts of $250 to $999 at a rate of 1:1 and all gifts of $1,000 and up at a rate of 2:1 this year. We hope you'll take advantage of this generous matching opportunity!
The money raised at this event will benefit the Friends of Norris Cotton Cancer Center (FNCCC). Funds will support innovative research and patient supportive services which benefit the Upper Valley and beyond. The Norris Cotton Cancer Center (NCCC) is one of only 51 NCI Designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers in the US. Our scientists are among the brightest in their fields, pioneering ideas in the areas of immune response therapy, tumor imaging, precision medicine, and much more. We need your help to raise money that can be used for, among other things, small research grants, which allow scientists to explore their ideas with the goal of attracting more large scale funding. Your fundraising dollars will also help NCCC provide important patient and family supportive services that help patients through their cancer journey ever step of the way. The money that we raise in a small-town tennis tournament can help improve the quality of cancer care both in our community and around the globe.
Register as an individual or team to play in the event on Sunday, March 1, 2020 at the Alexis Boss Tennis Center at Dartmouth College. Time slots are loosely based on ability, with USTA levels listed as guidelines. Exhibitions of spirit and camaraderie throughout the day are encouraged. Past year’s teams have used posters, face paint, tee shirts, and cheering to show who we honor when we play.
