Is the tennis racquet mightier than the sword?
Tomorrow we will find out as I’m squaring off in a celebrity tennis match to support Bode Miller’s Turtle Ridge Foundation which will be donating $10,000 dollars to Harlem Youth Tennis.
Apparently, Bode Miller would have been a professional tennis player if he wasn’t a skier and this explains why an Alpine skier is doing a tennis clinic. Also, would be hard to demonstrate Alpine Skiing at an event in NYC!
Justin Gimelstob, the tennis champion and Gossip Girl’s Sebastian Stan round out the doubles players. Not sure who I’ll be playing with, but it should be interesting. Its been awhile since I picked up a racquet!
It’s for a good cause and hopefully the children attending won’t laugh at my skills! -Tim

The Hublot “Tennis Fusion” Celebrity Challenge will feature Bode Miller, Sebastian Stan, Justin Gimelstob and Tim Morehouse in a doubles tennis match. The players will gather to support Bode’s relationship with the Harlem Youth Tennis and Educational Program. Following the Celebrity Challenge, Bode will lead a basic tennis clinic with kids from the program.
Bode Miller and his family started The Turtle Ridge Foundation in 2005. It is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting health, diversity, and sustainable living through sports. In February 2009 Bode joined forces with Hublot to collaborate on design and development of the new Hublot Bode Bang Limited Edition watch. A portion of sales from the watch will go to the Turtle Ridge Foundation. At the Hublot “Tennis Fusion” Celebrity Challenge, Hublot and The Turtle Ridge Foundation will donate 10,000 to Harlem Youth Tennis and Education Program.
