The Newport Beach Breakers Tennis Tournament at Newport Beach Country Club is surely one of the great social events of the summer on the Orange Coast. Tonight, a barbecue dinner party will introduce the team to the local crowd with a cocktail reception on center court. Coach Trevor Kronemann and roster players Lauren Albanese, Ramon Delgado, Rich Leach and Michaela Pastikova will mingle with local tennis lovers.
The live auction will benefit Hoag Hospital and will include a special travel package to New York for the U.S. Open, where the lucky recipients will be treated to seats in Billie Jean King's private suite.
Delgado has been one of the major stars of the Newport Beach Breakers, dazzling the tennis crowd with his 5-0 men's singles rout, which led the Breakers to a 20-15 win in the season opener against the Sacramento Capitols. Stars on the circuit include Anna Kournikova, Pete Sampras and, on July 22, superstar Venus Williams and the Philadelphia Freedoms are set to play on the Newport Beach courts.
