The McDaniel Tennis Tournament is a much-anticipated event in the Casa de Campo tennis-loving community, bringing together tennis players from the La Terraza and La Romana Country Club. It is also an event that serves a bigger purpose, as it is the major fundraiser for the player’s health insurance and the Ball Boy’s Scholarship. Over the years, the tournament has grown in popularity and importance, and its success can be attributed to the vision of its founder, Mr. Rick McDaniel and the tournament committee.
As you all know, last year Mr. Rick McDaniel announced his last full-time involvement in our Annual Tournament. However, the PBO has graciously agreed to support the McDaniel Committee Members in organizing the successful implementation of the 18th Annual CDC Teaching Pros Tennis Tournament.
The transition to the PBO has allowed the tournament to continue its core programs to benefit the ball boys and players, including health insurance for all players, tournament prize money, ball boys in the scholarship program, and sponsoring five graduates in the college program.
18th Annual CDC Teaching Pros Tennis Tournament
Doubles have been particularly popular, and this year’s tournament will feature pre-arranged draws featuring the Casa de Campo’s tennis players. Matches will be played at the La Romana Country Club and La Terraza’s tennis courts. The happy winners will receive their trophies during an awards ceremony following the finals at LRCC.
As a thank you to the sponsors there will be a Sponsors Appreciation Cocktail Party with delicious food catered by Casa de Camp on Friday afternoon along with one of the tennis matches, adding to the event’s excitement.
Donating to the McDaniel Tennis Program
The McDaniel Tennis Tournament is not just about tennis; it is about supporting a cause that is near and dear to the hearts of the Casa de Campo tennis community. Contributions go towards the Player’s Health Insurance, the Ball Boys Scholarship Fund, and College Scholarships for five graduates. The boys and teaching pros also receive weekly English lessons, improving their education and development.
Individual and corporate sponsors are encouraged to contribute to this worthy cause, with suggested donations between US$150 up to US$5,000. There is also a “Corporate Sponsorship” option. Please remember that all donations are Tax Deductible and Checks should be made out to “Patronato Benéfico Oriental, Inc. (please don’t forget to add “For McDaniel’s Programs”). The McDaniel Tennis Committee is also available to accept donations and answer any questions.
