Will Ferrell was the host this year to keep everyone and anyone entertained throughout the event. The tennis event featured a pro am tournament in the morning (with the participants receiving a goody bag from Tennis Warehouse!) and then an exhibition in the afternoon at the beautiful La Quinta Resort.
