Venus Williams Serves For At-Risk Youth


PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL  -- BallenIsles Country Club's Member resident and world-class tennis sensation, Venus Williams will take on record holder of the fastest serve in WTA history, Brenda Schultz-McCarthy on the Stadium Court of the Club's new state-of-the-art Sports Complex on Monday, December 27, 2010 at 4p.m.

 

Schultz claimed her place as the fastest server in WTA history in July 2006, recording a 130 mph serve during a qualifying tournament in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Venus Williams hit the fastest recorded serve in a women's tour main-draw match, reaching 129 mph at the 2007 French Open.

The Women's Doubles Exhibition featuring Williams vs. Schultz-McCarthy will be followed by a Charity Return Serve Exhibition that gives Club Members a rare opportunity to try and return the fastest serves in professional tennis, while supporting a worthy cause.

The BallenIsles Country Club exhibition is a complimentary event to Members and their guests with voluntary donations to benefit the Kids & Police Tennis Association (KAPTA).

"I'm looking forward to playing on the Stadium Court in an event that will entertain members and benefit such a good cause," Venus said.

KAPTA is a Palm Beach County Police Athletic League (PAL) Program, founded by Palm Beach County Deputy Sheriff, Ira Peskowitz, and uses tennis to establish an encouraging environment for children who might otherwise be exposed to crime.

BallenIsles Country Club has been lending its world class tennis facilities to KAPTA and the Club's teaching professionals are donating their time to teach children in the program, while promoting its values.

A Who's Who of former and current Grand Slam champions have played on the new BallenIsles Stadium court this year, including Virginia WadeStan SmithFred StolleMats WilanderBrenda Schultz-McCarthy and Venus Williams.
