The Helen Ross McNabb Foundation was thrilled to host the Knoxville Challenger, a seven day professional tennis event, November 4-10, 2019 at the Goodfriend Indoor Tennis Center. The Challenger series is a part of the USTA Pro Circuit series, which is designed to provide opportunities to aspiring young American professional tennis players to advance to the top levels of the game.
The Knoxville Challenger has raised more than $1,300,000 for the Helen Ross McNabb Center over the past 11 years. This event is held in memory of Harry W. Stowers. His life, work, commitment and passion for Helen Ross McNabb Center were of significant benefit to our entire community.
