The Lake Club welcomes the celebrated men’s doubles team, Bob and Mike Bryan, Olympic medalists and US Open champions for a professional tennis exhibition, the Bryan Brothers Shootout, on Saturday, August 25th at 5:00 PM.  The brothers will take on an opposing ATP team for an exciting evening of high level men’s tennis equivalent to the likes of Wimbledon. The opponents will be announced in early August. A limited number of tickets are now available for purchase to the general public at https://www.premiertennistravel.com/. The two ticket options are courtside seating at $75 per person or $400 for high-top table seating for four people. Concessions and refreshments will be available during the event.

The Bryan brothers are the most notable doubles team in the history of the sport having earned over 78 ATP tournament titles including the following 11 Grand Slam titles: five Australian Opens, one French Open, two Wimbledon titles and three US Opens.  They are currently rated the #1 men’s doubles team in the world by the Association of Tennis Professionals and have held this position since 2003. Having earned bronze medals for men’s doubles tennis at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, the duo are preparing to win gold medals in London this summer.  They will compete at the London 2012 Olympics prior to The Lake Club event and will then continue to showcase their talents at the US Open in September.  For more information on the brothers, see http://www.bryanbros.com/.

The Bryan Brothers Shootout will benefit two noteworthy children’s charities, the National Tennis Foundation and local organization, Norwalk Grassroots Tennis, where a percentage of ticket sales will be donated to each charity.  Both non-profit groups offer after-school tennis programs to under privileged and inner city youth, and make the game of tennis more accessible to many children who otherwise would not have the opportunity to play. For more information on these charities, refer to http://www.nationaltennisfoundation.org and http://www.norwalkgrassrootstennis.com/.

In conjunction with The Lake Club, the Bryan Brothers Shootout is being sponsored by American Business, Morgan Stanley, Rangeley Capital, Moet-Hennessey, Franco’s Liquor Store and anonymous Lake Club member donors.  Sponsorship opportunities are still being accepted on several levels.  If you would like to be part of this world class event, please contact Berend van Toor, Lake Club Director of Tennis at (203) 762-1663.

A family club since 1958, The Lake Club is located on 15 acres on the Wilton-New Canaan border. The year round facility offers its members top notch programs for tennis, swimming, diving, paddle tennis, boating and social events.
