It looked a bit different this year, but tennis, fitness and fun still ruled the day at the Fourth Annual Summer Smash fundraiser benefitting Buddy Up Tennis Columbus. A huge thank-you to Swim and Racquet Club for once again hosting this high-energy event packed with amazing adventures, including a tennis boot camp, fun for our Athletes, and to-go treats from Piadi Italian Street Food and Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams. Thank you to all of the Swim and Racquet Club and Players Club boot campers who joined our Athletes for an exciting morning!

Although our Athletes weren’t on the courts this year, they were still able to join together and have a blast with socially distanced Kickboxing, Zumba and Fitness to kick off our upcoming fall programming. Buddy Up LIVE will feature three different 10-week sessions so our Athletes can stay active and connected virtually during this challenging time, as we wait until we can be together on the courts again. Our amazing coaches Jill Hasskew, Kimberly Skeie and Kyle Collette provided our Athletes with an exhilarating taste of what is to come this fall. Our Athletes let loose with kicking, dancing, and jumping, and the tired boot campers did their best to keep up! Thank you to the Swim and Racquet Club and Players Club coaches, as well as to our Buddy Up Tennis Coaches, and Buddies who donated their time and helped make this event a rousing success.

This event wouldn’t have been possible without the generous support of our amazing Buddy Up Tennis community here in Columbus. A warm thank-you to our event sponsors Feazel and Swim and Racquet Club, along with our in-kind sponsors Piada Italian Street Food and Jeni’s Ice Cream. Check out the fun that was had by all at our 2020 Summer Smash event HERE!
