Spectators purchase tennis balls from your non-profit organization for $5 throughout the weekend and on Sunday afternoon toss them into the arena trying to be the closest to a pre-determined marker. Those closest to the marker receive Clinton’s instructional DVDs and Downunder Horsemanship training tools. All money raised goes straight to your organization!
WHAT WE PROVIDE
We provide numbered tennis balls, a table for your organization to use throughout the event and announcements to the crowd. You’re responsible for selling the tennis balls for $5 each and recording buyers’ names and ball numbers in a provided binder. You’re encouraged to work the crowd and sell as many tennis balls as you can. Clinton’s fans are a generous bunch and love to support equine organizations!
WHEN IT HAPPENS
During the afternoon break on Sunday, a stake will be driven into the middle of the arena to signal the start of the Ritchie Charity Ball Toss. Clinton will tell the crowd to throw their tennis balls into the arena trying to get as close to the stake as they can. After the rain of tennis balls subsides, the tour manager and our announcer will be in the arena to assist Clinton in determining the winners and handing out corresponding prizes.
