CHESTNUT HILL, MA--(Marketwire - Sep 11, 2012) - A who's who of investors and entrepreneurs from the Boston-area innovation community will take to the legendary grass courts in Chestnut Hill this Thursday to battle for the title of best tennis doubles team.

Iconic Tennis Industry Hall of Famer Nick Bollettieri -- mentor and coach to such international superstars as Agassi, Becker, Courier, Hingis, Jankovic, Rios, Seles, Sharapova and the Williams sisters -- will preside as more than 50 players take up their racquets during the round-robin tourney to raise funds once again for Tenacity. Using tennis and physical activities to meet a critical need for safe, healthy, productive after-school, in-school and summer programs for urban youth, Tenacity's initiatives have served more than 20,000 children. Importantly, they are closely integrated with literacy programs to help build academic motivation and achievement.

BSG Team Ventures is hosting the tourney. Sponsors include Silicon Valley Bank, Burns & Levinson LLP, Grant Thornton LLP, Xconomy, Weston Racquet Club and CHEN PR.
