6th Annual Rob Schmidt Memorial Pro-Am October 13

The 6th annual Rob Schmidt Memorial Pro-Am is scheduled for Friday October 13 at the University Tennis Centre on the Western University campus in London.  All proceeds will support high school tennis in London and other local tennis initiatives.

Rob had a loving compassionate soul and despite his short time on earth he touched the hearts of so many. Rob passed away from an acute intestinal infection on July 9, 2012 at the age of 29.

While he attended Western University, he was honoured to be part of 5 OUA championship tennis teams. He also wrote several articles for Ontario Tennis magazine. Rob was eager to use the growing popularity and his love of tennis to get more kids active and interested in tennis at the local level. His parents Werner and Pauline hope to continue with his dream.

The past 2 years pro-am proceeds provided three elementary school class trips for an afternoon on tennis instruction to 75 needy children. It was such a huge success.

Robs parents would love your help in any way you can. We will hold a silent auction and would really appreciate your support. Last year the pro-am raised $3,600 for this worthy cause and has raised a total of $18,500. Sign up and/or donate now – 519-434-1825 or pelsworthyschmidt@hotmail.com
