Program of Events

The Seaside SMASH Celebrity Tennis Benefit was introduced to tennis enthusiasts to be a fun two days of skill improvement, strategy play, and to raise funds for junior tennis programs on the Island of Hawaii.  The event has raised over $50,000 towards tennis programs for kids on the island and we look forward to raising more and helping those programs in need.

In 2024, we will continue focusing on improving the SMASH event with donations raised towards tennis on the Island of Hawai'i, all while improving your skills and love for the games of tennis.  You will notice we have added two additional clinics to the event which focus on tennis cardio to improve your game and make tennis even more enjoyable.
