About the McDaniel Tennis Tournament
The McDaniel Tennis Tournament is played every year between the ball boys and teaching pros at the La Romana Country Club tennis club and the La Terraza tennis club – both in Casa de Campo, the aim of the event is to raise funds to pay for sponsorship of an increasing number of the Casa de Campo tennis club’s ball boys. In total last year the tournament raised 1.2 million pesos from 67 generous sponsors – which was distributed among the winners and participants of the tournament, used to pay for the scholarships of the balls boys and English classes for the ball boys and the teaching pros.
The McDaniel tennis tournament now sponsors a total of 16 ball boys and 1 honorary ball girl – at a cost of RD$25,000 per child per year. Every year the tournament has been attracting more and more sponsors so that every year they are able to offer sponsorships to 4 more children, we hope that the scheme will continue to grow so that it may help even more children!
