The Dirk Nowitzki Pro Celebrity Tennis Classic Hits SMU!

DALLAS -- We all know Dirk Nowitzki is an elite basketball player but what did you know he also likes to play a little tennis?

On Sunday, the Dallas Mavericks star hosted his Pro-Celebrity Tennis Classic at the SMU Tennis Center.

"It’s been great. It’s a lot of fun. It’s so great to do something benefiting Dirk's foundation. He’s done so much for Dallas and this is just a great way to support his foundation,” said Courtney Sinelli.  “And it’s so much fun being out here with all the pros, and the celebrities and the amateurs like myself."

Not only was the event star studded with appearances by Ben Stiller and Andy Roddick; all funds will benefit many children charities within the Dirk foundation.
