Get Set For Smash Hits!
WTT Smash Hits

WASHINGTON, DC, USA - Elton John and Billie Jean King are bringing their annual WTT Smash Hits presented by GEICO charity night to Washington, DC on Monday, November 15. It will feature women's tennis greats Stefanie Graf, Anna Kournikova, Martina Navratilova and Rennae Stubbs and men's greats Andre Agassi, James Blake, Mark Knowles and Jan-Michael Gambill.

Captained by John and King, the players will form two teams and play five sets of World TeamTennis. John will also participate in a celebrity doubles match.

"We are so thrilled to bring Smash Hits to our nation's capital this year," King said. "This is the perfect venue for us to raise the awareness of HIV and AIDS and we are excited to build upon the growing support in the community."

WTT Smash Hits, currently in its 18th year, has raised over $9.6 million for the Elton John AIDS Foundation and various local AIDS charities since 1993. The District of Columbia now suffers the highest rate of new AIDS cases in the United States and an HIV infection rate 12 times the national average.
