14th Annual Smash Cancer Tennis Tournament

Smash Cancer

May 19-21, 2023
Althea Gibson Tennis Center at Empie Park | 3405-A Park Avenue | Wilmington, NC

What We are Supporting

One of the main goals of Smash Cancer is to raise awareness for head and neck cancer. During the tournament, physicians and clinical staff will perform free screenings for head and neck cancer and provide educational materials to the public. 

Our Impact

This year will be our 14th annual tournament and each year we grow in participation and in screenings provided. Thanks to our sponsors and participants we were able to donate over $100,000 to the Head and Neck Cancer Alliance to date.

These funds go directly to helping head and neck cancer patients get to and from treatments through HNCA's Gas Card Program.
