WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — This weekend tennis legend Lenny Simpson will welcome the top doubles tennis team in the world, the Bryan brothers, into Trask Coliseum for an exhibition match. It’s to raise money for Simpson’s One Love tennis program.

Tickets are still available.

Simpson says One Love takes Wilmington’s youth and serves them the skills needed to ace life on and off the court.

“I’m trying to give back the same way that those people here and other places have done for me,” Simpson said. “It’s all about mentoring. It’s all about role models. This is how kids get a chance to succeed in anything.”

One Love mentors up to 500 kids around the Port City, and if you would like to get your child involved, spots are still available.
