Court of Dreams Event Raises Money for Mental Health

If you build it, they will come….


And they did, as more than 600 people filled the stands at the Court of Dreams Celebration of Tennis event in Charles City July 15-16 with tennis pros Madison Keys, Caty McNally and many others. The grass court, which is a replica of Wimbledon’s Centre Court, was the location for the event which raised money for the Kindness Wins Foundation, which supports mental health awareness.

“The event was world-class and Madison, Caty McNally, KP Pannu, Nathan Healey were all phenomenal as were our Junior players, Iowa State Champion Maya Mallavarapu, and 2020 PIAA Pennsylvania State Champion Emma Perkins,” said event organizer Ryan Knarr.
