“It was such a gorgeous day to be out on the courts with so many legends of the game, our generous JMTP supporters who have made tennis a part of their own lives and, of course, our JMTP kids showing off their skills at Sportime Amagansett—followed by an incredible evening, with Alan Cumming keeping the energy up in the DJ booth,” said tennis icon John McEnroe, “This was our 5th Annual Pro-Am, and we’re thrilled to be expanding the work of our nonprofit—introducing tennis to more young people who wouldn’t otherwise have access to the game and to high-level training and competitive play. We’re looking to help kids grow as individuals, as well as to create the next generation of American tennis champions right here in my hometown of NYC. As always this event is a great way to kick off US Open week.”
Following the Pro-Am, an After Party, hosted at a private residence, featured music selections by renowned actor and celebrity DJ Alan Cumming.
“I’m thrilled to be joining John McEnroe and JMTP in the effort to make tennis more accessible, inclusive and affordable for young New Yorkers,” noted Cumming. “Tennis, like any major sport, is larger than just a game—which is something I was pleased to have the chance to explore playing the role of designer Ted Tinling in Battle of the Sexes. Sports and sports figures have a responsibility to confront social inequality, and it’s great that JMTP is doing that.”
