The Philadelphia Freedoms 2013 Mylan World TeamTennis presented by GEICO season home opener will take place on July 10 at the Pavilion at Villanova University, featuring the return of Andy Roddick playing for the Springfield Lasers. The home season continues on July 16 when 2013 Australian Open semifinalist and current world no. 16 Sloane Stephens makes her Freedoms home debut against the defending WTT Champion Washington Kastles and former world no. 1 Martina Hingis, who will be inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame just three days prior. Sloane continues her Freedoms run with home matches July 17 and July 19. Then, the world’s top doubles team and Olympic gold medalists, Bob and Mike Bryan, visit with the Texas Wild on July 21. Hall of Famer John McEnroe closes out the Freedoms regular season when he visits with the New York Sportimes on July 24. Tickets to all Freedoms home matches are available online at freedomstix.ticketfly.com or by calling 866-WTT-TIXS.
The Freedoms have also agreed to provide Project Green Ball with exhibition space at the Freedoms’ home matches. If you intend to attend Freedom home matches we encourage you to bring your dead tennis balls to donate to Project Green Ball. We will be collecting the balls at our exhibition space.
If you are in the Philadelphia area and would like to volunteer for Project Green Ball at the Freedoms’ home matches, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to get you involved with our collection efforts.
