Celebrating its twelfth year, the Desert Smash announces its newest partnership, and for the first time, the annual charity Pro vs. Celebrity tennis event will be hosted by the Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa in Rancho Mirage, California.

“The Desert Smash is an unparalleled event uniting tennis and philanthropy, so we’re thrilled to host this marquee event at The Westin Mission Hills,” said Jim Pedone, Director of Sales and Marketing at The Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa. “We look forward to welcoming the Desert Smash to its new home this year and for years to come.”

Taking place on Tuesday, March 8, 2016, the Desert Smash annually brings together some of the biggest names in Hollywood and the world’s most accomplished professional tennis players for an afternoon of fun and entertaining on-court competition – exclusively benefitting its philanthropic partner.

The Desert Smash Celebrity/Pro-Am Tournament is arguably one of the country’s most prominent; composed of ranked WTA and ATP Tour players and some of the most notable and recognized celebrity players from Hollywood. Past professional tennis participants include ATP World No. 1 Novak Djokovic, John Isner, Stan Wawrinka, ATP World No. 1 doubles team Mike and Bob Bryan, Andre Agassi, Steffi Graf, Maria Sharapova, Caroline Wozniacki, Fernando Verdasco, Victoria Azarenka and Eugenie Bouchard.

Each year, this sell-out event notoriously attracts both celebrity and tennis fans for a once in a lifetime opportunity to play and rub elbows with the world’s best tennis players. Past celebrity hosts and attendees include Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart, Kevin Spacey, Rebel Wilson, Joel McHale, Michael B. Jordan and Boris Kodjoe.

This year’s Desert Smash kicks off with the ultra-exclusive, VIP Pro-Am Tournament and renowned competitive on-court workout, LiveBall , which was invented and made famous right here in Southern California. Following these fun, interactive experiences is the fan favorite Pro vs. Celebrity Exhibition singles and doubles matches, which will take place on Westin’s Stadium Tennis Court.

Following an unmatched day of tennis and fundraising, The Westin Mission Hills Resort & Spa will host an evening cocktail party and live concert presented by Tequila Herradura.
