ELTON JOHN: Teaming Again With Billie Jean King for Tennis Fundraiser
Noted players such as Kim Clijsters, John McEnroe, Tim Henman and 2013 Wimbledon runner-up Sabine Lisicki have signed on for the December 7th London event.
Elton John and Billie Jean King are teaming up again. FOX Sports reports that the rock icon and the subject of his chart-busting “Philadelphia Freedom” will host a charity tennis match at Royal Albert Hall in London.
Set for December 7th, King’s World Team Tennis Smash Hits event will benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation. With John and King serving as coaches, the lineup features such prominent playing pairs as Kim Clijsters and John McEnroe, and Britain’s Tim Henman and 2013 Wimbledon runner-up Sabine Lisicki.
The charity event, which has raised $12 million since 1993, will be staged on the final night of a Masters tennis tournament.
