Elton said: “This family-friendly event helps to raise awareness about the continuing challenges of the AIDS epidemic both locally and nationally and to raise urgently needed dollars for community-based HIV prevention, education, advocacy, treatment, and care services. I urge all tennis fans and concerned citizens in the Las Vegas area to support this event and bring their families for a wonderful evening of tennis for a great cause.”
 
Billie Jean King remarked: “Last year’s WTT Smash Hits in Las Vegas was one of the most electric and entertaining events of the year, and I look forward to being part of an even bigger event this October at Caesars Palace. While the tennis is always competitive, one of my favourite parts about this annual event is the work we do for the HIV/AIDS community globally and especially here in Las Vegas.  I look forward to being part of Smash Hits every year because it really is the complete package of sport, entertainment and community support.”

“We are honoured once again to host World Team Tennis Smash Hits for the second time in Las Vegas,” said Caesars Palace President Gary Selesner. “This prestigious event will be an extraordinary edition to our exciting year here at Caesars Palace as we celebrate the resort’s 50th anniversary. Throughout the past 50 years, Caesars Palace has earned its title as the ‘Home of Champions’ by hosting hundreds of signature sporting events featuring some of the legendary athletes and sports figures of all-time. WTT Smash Hits is another groundbreaking event to add to our illustrious history. We thank Billie Jean King and our resident headliner Elton John for including Caesars Palace in their noble cause.”

The fundraiser begins with a pre-match VIP Reception and Auction at 5 p.m. at Caesars Palace. Elton, Billie, and the other players will participate in the pre-match live auction, which will feature a piano bench signed by Elton, among other items.
