Kastles Opening Night in Washington: A Grand Slam

Last night, the press came out in full force to catch a glimpse of Venus Williams; fresh from Wimbledon and playing against the Washington Kastles for the Philadelphia Freedom.

Though Serena Williams, Washington’s headliner didn’t hit the court for our home team, her sister was kind enough to help Kastles Owner Mark Ein kick off the season in style with a news conference, interviews and plenty of photo opps.

Spotted courtside: Mayor Adrian Fenty and family, AOL Co-founder Steve Case, new Cap File EIC Sarah Schaffer, BCM’s Katherine Kennedy, Anystream Founder Geoff Allen, TWT’s Stephanie Green and Liz Glover, Redskins Hall of Famer Darrell Green and the Wizards’ Caron Butler.

If you haven’t been to a Kastles match, go this season. I’m obsessed. You can catch Anna Kournikova tonight or click here for this season’s full schedule.
