🎾 It’s Back! Welcome to the Desert Smash! In its 19th year, the Desert Smash is the world’s most famous celebrity tennis event that brings together Hollywood and Pro Tennis for charity, and this year will be no exception! Desert Smash brings together Hollywood's biggest celebrities and the world’s best professional tennis players for a one-day extravaganza at the prestigious La Quinta Resort & Club (www.laquintaresort.com). The event is intentionally held prior to the 5th biggest tennis tournament in the world, the BNP Paribas Open, in neighboring Indian Wells. This year, Desert Smash will benefit Playing For Change Foundation - an international (501c3) non-profit organization founded in 2007, operating 17 music programs across 13 countries. PFCF is a true global nonoprofit offering creative opportunities to marginalized youth.

With renowned DJs setting the tone with great music undertones, the festive atmosphere is complemented with a fun “Desert Smash Village” of brands and sponsors showcasing their products, celebrities walking our Red Carpet and of course the margaritas flowing at our fun hosted-bars! The renowned Desert Smash Tennis Exhibition kicks off at 2PM, with our celebrity emcee and chair umpires at the helm steering us through an array of competitive, yet fun, entertaining matches. The on-court matches typically will start with a WTA Tour pro player match, continue with (two scheduled) celebrity + pro players doing battle in fun doubles matches—in Desert Smash form—all mic’d up and making us laugh with their on-court banter! We'll wrap up the exhibition with a ATP Tour men's singles match featuring two of the most well recognized players in the game! During the exhibition, expect on-court special appearances, an incredible on-court live auction, fan interaction and fun interviews! Plus two special moments you'll want to be there to be a part of!
