Media Night With The Washington Kastles

Well, it may not have officially been media night at the Washington Kastles match, but plenty of journos came out last night to see Serena Williams play in her first and only home match.

Joining Kastles owner Mark Ein in the front row was National Economic Council director Larry Summers, Bloomberg’s Margaret Carlson and Al Hunt, with wife Judy Woodruff of PBS. Also in the stands: Tammy Haddad, Betsy Fischer, Luke Russert, Hilary Rosen and the lovely ladies of Qorvis Kelly McCormick, Chelsea Cummings and Katie Young.

Michelle Fenty was there with her boys- who got a high-five from Ein after nearly every Kastles point scored. Legendary tennis player Billie Jean King was also there to cheer Serena on.

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.
