Event to Benefit Wheelchair Tennis at Irvine Club

Luke and Murphy Jensen, top doubles players on the ATP tour, will participate in a benefit for the National Foundation of Wheelchair Tennis, Sunday at the Racquet Club of Irvine.

The event, which begins at 1 p.m., will include a free clinic for juniors, an opportunity to hit with the Jensen brothers and an exhibition match pairing the brothers against Scott Melville and Wimbledon and U.S. Open doubles champion Rick Leach.

The Jensens, who have won several doubles titles, including the French Open, will make a contribution from the ATP Tour Charities to the Orange County-based National Foundation of Wheelchair Tennis. The Foundation is a nonprofit organization that promotes the sport by offering clinics, exhibitions, tournaments and camps for physically disabled youth.

General admission tickets are available for $10 each, with children younger than 18 admitted free with a paid adult. VIP tickets are also available for $50 ($75 at the door), which includes a reception with the Jensens after the event.
