The biggest and best tennis event of the year!
The proceeds from this tournament benefit The Wintergreen Nature Foundation and the Wintergreen Rescue Squad, two exceptional organizations that are an integral part of life here on the mountain and in the valley. Last year we made great progress towards our goal of having AEDs (Automated External Defibrillator) at every high traffic Wintergreen location, and this year in conjunction with the Rescue Squad, we will continue towards that goal.
