We invite you to join us for the 5th annual Play For Team Luke Event presented by Altec Styslinger Foundation! The event will be on October 2nd at the Ben Geren Tennis Center in Fort Smith, Arkansas. We have some really exciting things planned for this year and we sincerely hope you will join us for a great cause!

We are excited to be offering a pickleball team shoot out event this year with a 60 player limit. There will be three rounds of matches and you can register alone, with a partner, as a full team or you can pick to play with a pickleball professional! Each team will be comprised of 5 players and one pro. Don’t worry, we provide the pros – just make sure one of your team members purchases a “Play With A Pro” ticket. The deadline to register for the pickleball team shoot out is Monday, September 27th at 11:59 pm.

For our tennis loving friends, we are thrilled to have former #4 in the world, Brad Gilbert and French Open Doubles Champions, The Jensen Brothers! As in years past, we will have Adult and Junior clinics available. If you are registering multiple adults or juniors, please register each person individually. This will allow us to capture the necessary information and also have a quick registration process.

Following the event, we will be hosting The Third Set! Featuring live music by Jason Campbell and Robby Deal, food, drinks and a good time. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to play tennis or pickleball and enjoy a day outside while supporting a great organization. The event is benefitting Team Luke Hope for Minds. Team Luke Hope for Minds exists to enrich the lives of children with a brain injury and give hope to their families through support and education.

Registration will open at 7:45 for pickleball players and will remain open all day for spectators and adult and junior clinic participants. If you are participating in the adult or junior clinic, you can arrive as early as you would like. The Third Set will begin at 1:45 with live music and food trucks will arrive at noon. Third Set music will be provided by Jason Campbell and Robby Deal. After the raffle, guests will be able to stay and enjoy the music, food and refreshments.
