A cancer diagnosis is a life-changing event for patients and everyone who is part of their lives. Players and sponsors of the Smash Cancer Pickleball Tournament can serve up hope to those facing the fear and uncertainty of cancer.

All proceeds raised through this event benefit the Jerry and Mary Lexa Patient Assistance Fund at Baptist Cancer Center-Oxford. This fund subsidizes care, medication-related expenses, transportation, lodging, meals and other support services for patients who otherwise could not afford them.

Your support as a tournament player or sponsor will be very much appreciated, and will help in the fight to smash cancer!
