As mentioned previously, Elton and Billie Jean King are teaming up for their annual charity event, WTT Smash Hits, on November 15, 2010.

For the first time, this is taking place in Washington, D.C. Held at the Bender Arena at American University, the benefit will raise money for Elton's AIDS foundation and Washington, D.C. Area AIDS charities.

At the 18th such event, John and King will each captain a team composed of tennis champions Andre Agassi, James Blake, Stefanie Graf, Anna Kounikova, Martina Navratilova and more who will play the World TeamTennis format.

Last years Smash Hits raised $640,000 for the EJAF and AIDS charities serving the Greater Baton Rouge area.

Smash Hits has raised more than $10 million for Elton's philanthropy and various local AIDS organisations since its inception in 1993.
