07 Jul 2016 MXD Championships with Jubilee
2016 MXD Championships are underway
You’re not going to find any strawberries and cream at this weekends local event. Well…maybe you might. I’ll tell you what you will find. Not only a very competitive and fun mixed doubles tournament. There will also be a Players Party on Saturday which all the proceeds will benefit the local Jubilee Reach organization.
What is the Jubilee Reach you ask?
They are a local organization that is celebrating 10 years of transforming lives and communities one student at a time. The organization supports the social and emotional needs of children and their families. They offer mentoring, tutoring, and over 20 after-school clubs and sports within Bellevue public schools because they believe every child deserves to be known, loved, affirmed and belong to something greater than self.
How do they do it?
They love students and families. By engaging 1,835 students during the 2014-15 school year in 22 after-school sports and clubs. They are now serving 14 schools within Bellevue School District and launching college and career readiness support at Sammamish High School.
They also listen to the deeper needs in the community. A total of 935 volunteers served 21,255 hours with Jubilee REACH this past year, meeting the needs of our community where they are presented with compassionately delivered service.
Last but not least, they learn from who they serve. Partnering with local businesses, churches, the Bellevue School District and area nonprofits to step in the gap for those in need.
What about the actual Tennis matches?
This is the 12th annual MXD championship tourney. The division were flighted by USTA rating of 6.0, 7.0, 8.0 and open levels. Matches will be held at either the Central Park Tennis Club or the Bellevue Club. I’ve included a link of the tournament schedule here, so that you may find the match that peaks your interest.
