Special Announcement
Tennis Against Breast Cancer

The 14th Annual Tennis Against Breast Cancer Tennis Challenge took place on Sunday, October 29th at Roosevelt Island Racquet Club in New York City. Davis Cup Captain Patrick McEnroe was on hand to kick off a fun day of tennis with participants and local top junior players Lindsay Clark and Laken & Carlissa King. Also on hand was Easter Bowl Founder and Tournament director Seena Hamilton.

It was over a decade ago when Maureen Rankine began to put her heart and soul into Tennis Against Breast Cancer. She had no direct connection to the disease, but she had seen and heard enough to know that women needed help in early detection and early treatment of this disease. This summer, however, the illness hit home as Maureen's mother was struck with cancer. Without early detection available in Jamaica the diagnosis was terminal. It was a bittersweet tribute to the event when, just as the party was beginning on October 29th, the woman who had raised nine children (seven of them tennis players) lost her battle.

Donations are still coming in from the weekend events, as well as sales of TABC jewelry and clothing. Please visit the TennisABC Website to purchase products - or just make a donation to honor Beryl Rankine and all of those who have been touched by Breast Cancer.
