The 13th Annual Desert Smash is a charity celebrity tennis event where Hollywood and professional tennis collides.


Desert Smash brings the top ATP and WTA Tour Pro's together to play for a day with Hollywood's biggest stars.  We’re thrilled to announce Hollywood leading man, Emmy and Golden Globe winning actor Jon Hamm as our host for the 13th Annual Desert Smash!  Jon will be on the court appearing on behalf of one of the event beneficiaries, St Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  We’re looking forward to seeing how great ‘Don Draper’s’ forehand is on the 7th!


LiveBall PLAYER – LiveBall is a crazy popular Southern California-invented doubles-style game in which pairs (combined amateurs, pro-tennis players and Hollywood celebrities) compete to gain and maintain control of a ‘Champion’ side.  It’s a glorified “King of the Court” type game! VIEW DETAILS

ST JUDE is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.

VARIETY – CHARITY OF THE DESERT is dedicated to promoting and protecting the health and well-being of children who are underprivileged and/or have special needs in the Coachella Valley– children who live and grow up with a serious illness, disability or disadvantage. These are extra special children who require a special kind of help. Through hard work, thoughtful stewardship, and single-minded focus on the needs of the young, Variety strives to make a lasting difference in the lives of children, their families, our community, and the world… one need at a time.

SOPHIE'S VOICE FOUNDATION supports Global Health and Wellness initiatives in multicultural communities. Sophie’s Voice Foundation was founded in 2007 by actors Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Ari Parker in honor of their daughter Sophie who was diagnosed with Spina Bifida at birth.  By dedicating themselves to a healthy lifestyle they found ways to address not only their daughters mental, physical and medical needs but also the needs of their entire family.  Boris and Nicole have committed their resources and celebrity to educating multicultural communities worldwide on the importance of families and working together to build healthy lifestyles one day at a time.
