24th Annual US-Japan Friendship Cup Tennis Tournament

May 21, 2011 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm

Congratulations to our 2011 champion, Mr. Yasuo Shimada, and to all of this year’s players and sponsors for raising nearly $700 for Japan earthquake relief!
The Japan Society is proud to announce the 24th Annual US-Japan Friendship Cup Tennis Tournament.
Started in 1987, this friendly tournament was launched to build friendships between the peoples of Japan and the United States on the courts. The Consular Cup, which was donated to the tournament in 1990 by the Consulate General of Japan, will be awarded to the winner.
This year, 100% of net proceeds from the tournament will go to JSNC Japan Earthquake & Tsunami Relief Fund to rebuild communities damaged by the disastrous earthquake and resulting tsunami that struck the Northeastern region of Japan.
