Davie Fest: an Oakland Tennis Benefit
September 28, 2013 at the historic Davie Tennis Stadium
198 Oak Road, Oakland, California (map)
Event Schedule

Davie Fest featured Oakland-native Brad Gilbert, former world #4 and coach to Andre Agassi and Andy Roddick – and included an exhibition doubles match, a clinic with Brad Gilbert as well an opportunity to hit against him, hit-for-prizes sponsored by Dunlop, babolat and Wilson, live music, and a VIP cocktail reception.

Net proceeds from the day will be used to upgrade Oakland's tennis facilities in preparation for 2014 National Public Parks Tennis Championship, as well as fund free tennis programs for underserved Oakland youth in honor and memory of Mark Manning, long-time East Oakland tennis coach.

The event is over .... Please feel free to donate to DavieFest so we can complete the work we started.
