Baylor Tennis Team Announces 7th Annual Serving It Up For Siskin Tennis Tournament

Thursday, October 10, 2019

The 7th annual Serving It Up for Siskin Children’s Institute mixed doubles tennis tournament will be hosted by the Baylor School’s Boys and Girls Tennis Team on Saturday, Nov. 9 at their home courts. This year’s tournament, led by the senior’s on the tennis team, Anna Hawkins, Grace Mooney, Carolyn Reid, Defne Bozbey, Hunter Smith, Ethan Burgan and John Gilbert, will raise funds for the programs and services of Siskin Children’s Institute, a local organization serving children with special needs and their families in the region.

“I have loved seeing families rejoice from the hope and care Siskin has provided for the kids,” says Baylor student Defne Bozbey. “I am excited to be a part of something that makes such a great impact.”

Serving it Up for Siskin began as a senior project in 2013 by Baylor alumnae McCall Morgan and Harper Caswell. The original event succeeded tremendously and created a partnership with the Baylor tennis program. Now an annual event, the tournament has raised approximately $68,990 since its inception. Each year the Baylor Tennis Team passes the torch, building a legacy of philanthropy and community service with a goal to surpass the previous year with the participation level and total amount raised. The students at Baylor look forward to the tournament year after year.

“I have always been a player in the Siskin tournament and now I get the privilege of being an organizer and giving back to my community,” says senior, Grace Mooney.

This tournament is open to all ages and skill levels free of charge to participate. However, donations from participants are appreciated and welcomed.

Registration Deadline for Serving It Up for Siskin is Thursday, Oct. 31. To register for the event visit: siskin.org/play or contact Hunter Smith at smithwi@baylorschool.org.
