The Baton Rouge Wheelchair Tennis Association (BRWTA) announced at its board dinner on Nov. 2 that it raised a record $36,556* to help support the 2022 Cajun Classic Wheelchair Tennis Tournament, to be held in Baton Rouge next March at the Paula G. Manship YMCA.

Mike the Tiger with Jennifer, Emily and Rusty at Hallowheel 2021Members of BRWTA raised the funds through the annual Edward Jones Investments / Tex Morris “Hallowheel” charity tennis and pickleball tournament, held Oct. 22-24, at BREC’s Highland Park Tennis Center. The previous Hallowheel fundraising record was $23,687 in 2019.

The 2021 Hallowheel tournament attracted nearly 400 players from the Baton Rouge area and from states as far away as Michigan who competed in men’s and women’s doubles (tennis and pickleball) and mixed doubles (pickleball).

Hallowheel also included a separate “Up-Down” draw where wheelchair players from Louisiana and Mississippi were paired with able-bodied players for tennis doubles competition all weekend.

Since 2015, the Hallowheel tournament has raised $122,500 for the Cajun Classic. Hallowheel is one of the most unique tournaments in the United States, as it features traditional tennis and pickleball matches along with the Up-Down tennis competition.

The Hallowheel charity tennis tournament was created in 2015 by Emily Greene and Rusty Jabour who co-chair the event as a fundraiser for the world-acclaimed Cajun Classic. Tex and Cindy Morris co-chair the pickleball competition, which became part of Hallowheel in 2017.
