Bryan Brothers’ host first charity event, All-Star Tennis Smash

Mike and Bob Bryan, hold the award they received from the City of Oxnard on
Friday, Sept. 26, 2008, at Plaza Park in Oxnard.


After winning the US Open and bringing home the bronze in Beijing, Bob and Mike Bryan are set to host the first ever event for their new charity, The Bryan Brothers Foundation.

The Bryan Brothers’ All-Star Tennis Smash will take place on Saturday, September 27, 2008 at the Sherwood Country Club.

The event will feature tennis stars and celebrities, including Andre Agassi, Gavin Rossdale, Lindsay Davenport, James Blake, Sam Querrey, John Isner, Thomas Blake, Justin Gimelstob, Corina Morariu, Jon Lovitz, Amaury Nolasco, Brandi Carlile and Mardy Fish.

The event is Agassi’s first scheduled public playing tennis appearance this year.


The All-Star Tennis Smash will benefit local and national charities including City Impact, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping kids in Ventura County.

Agassi, in a large part, is the reason why the Bryans have forged ahead with this effort.
"Andre really inspired them, as well as alot of American players, to give back," said Wayne Bryan, the players' father, after a ceremony Friday to honour the foundation.

"We've been trying for two years to get this going, and Sherwood's a great venue to kick it off," said Mike, who recently teamed with Fish on the U.S. doubles team in Spain during the Davis Cup semis.
Hopefully we'll see some of the photos from this event soon.
