GW Women's Tennis to Host Pro-Am Tournament over Alumni Weekend
Register to Participate in Alumni Event on Sept. 29, and Make an Impact on GW Student-Athletes
Sept. 13, 2012
WASHINGTON – With George Washington University’s Alumni Weekend just around the corner, the Colonials women’s tennis program welcomes GW and Mount Vernon alumnae, former players and tennis enthusiasts to participate in its Pro-Am Tennis Tournament and Generation to Generation Luncheon on Saturday, Sept. 29.
GW women’s tennis and Mount Vernon alumnae, as well as local tennis supporters, are all encouraged to participate. The cost of the event is a donation to make an impact on the lives of the GW women’s tennis student-athletes and the program.
“Our team has continually strived to be the best it can be – in the classroom, on the tennis court and in the community. To achieve excellence in these areas, we rely on the philanthropic and emotional investment from our donors and fans,” said ninth-year head coach Dawn Buth. “With the support of donors and the community, we are able to provide our student-athletes with the best opportunities to be successful.”
The event will begin at 8 a.m. with the opportunity to watch the GW women’s tennis team practice at the GW Tennis Center on the Mount Vernon Campus, followed by a registration period from 9:30-9:50 a.m. Introductions and an ice-breaker will run from 9:50-10:10 a.m., and a round-robin tournament will run from 10:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m., led by GW women’s tennis student-athletes and Coach Buth, a former Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) Top 100 player.
At the conclusion of the round-robin tournament, a networking reception will take place inside Post Hall from 12:30 – 1 p.m., when the Generation to Generation Luncheon will commence.
“For generations, women have been organized, driven and perseverant to achieve more and impact change in society, education and in the workplace,” said Coach Buth. “This event connects great women from all generations. For our student-athletes, it is invaluable to have this connection and to learn from those who have experienced these things before. I am excited for our young women to have this wonderful opportunity.”
