The 10th Annual FilAm Friendship Tennis Tournament will be held on July 16 and 17, 2016, at Holua Tennis Center in Kailua-Kona.

This is a charity event that raises scholarship funds for eligible college bound West Hawai‘i graduating high school students.

Over the past nine years, the event has helped over 70 students pursue their quest for higher education.

This is the biggest non-sanctioned United States Tennis Association (USTA) tournament in the state and is one of the most popular and anticipated sporting event of the year on the island, attracting players and spectators from across the state and from the Mainland.

In addition to fun competitive tennis, there are other fun activities such as “Dunk for Prizes,” a bake sale, silent auction, delicious foods and more.
