Sally Paddle Tennis Tournament
The Sally has been held at Fox Meadow Tennis Club in Scarsdale, New York, for over 35 years. It is a competitive, yet friendly, women’s paddle and silent auction event for intermediate to advanced players. Proceeds from The Sally support the Children’s Village Sanctuary, which provides a safe haven for Westchester County (NY) teens who are homeless or have run away, often from unsafe or abusive homes. They come to the shelter voluntarily, often after spending weeks or months on the street. Each year, more than 200 at-risk teens come to the shelter lonely and scared and leave with a safe place to go and a plan for success.
