BETHEL, CT - No matter what your game this fall season, Ability Beyond is setting its sights for a hole-in-one and ace on the court by adding a unique Tennis Tournament to its Annual Golf Championship Event on Monday, October 1st at Ridgewood Country Club in Danbury, CT.

The competition is one of Ability Beyond’s largest fundraisers, attracting over 100 golfers each year. New to this year’s charity event is an option to compete in a round robin tennis tournament, sponsored by Mt. Kisco Truck and Auto Parts. Proceeds will help Ability Beyond provide critical supports – including home care and job training – to more than 3,000 people with disabilities in Connecticut and New York.
“Last year’s event raised over $65,000 and we are very optimistic that participants and sponsors will be instrumental in helping us hit this year’s goal of $80,000, especially with our new tennis competition, which will allow more supporters to enjoy a day of ball for all,” said Jim Kennedy, Ability Beyond Board of Director and Chair of Golf Event Committee.

The golf tournament will be scramble format and the tennis component round robin format to encourage participation from all levels of players. “It’s a fun and enjoyable experience without the pressure of individual scoring,” adds Kennedy.

The cost is $350 for an individual golfer and $1,600 for a foursome. Registration for the tennis tournament is $175. Those who still want to support the organization but do not wish to participate in an athletic event can purchase dinner and live auction tickets for $75. Deadline is Thursday, September 27th and interested parties can register at

In addition to a great day on the links or on the court, attendees will enjoy a silent auction, hole-in-one prizes including a chance to win a BMW courtesy of BMW of Ridgefield, and awards for closest-to-the-pins and longest drive. The day kicks off with registration at 10:30 am followed by:
· 11:15 am Lunch
· 12:30 pm Shotgun Start
· 2:00 pm Round Robin Tournament
· 5:15 pm Reception and Silent Auction viewing
