The Serving For Heroes Charity Open is a premier 300pt USTA-sanctioned tennis tournament hosted at Lake Newport Tennis Facility in Reston, VA. The tournament is open to all USTA members.
Serving For Heroes Charity Open was founded in 2013 as a way for the Mid-Atlantic tennis community to give thanks and recognition to the men and women who were returning home from years of war. Over the last four years the tournament has hosted more than 500 tennis players and raised over $30,000 to support the recovery process of wounded veterans as well as ease the emotional and physical hardships that many military children experience while a parent is deployed. In 2013, the tournament won the USTA Military Tennis Award.
