The celebrity and tennis/pickleball pros battled it out in the desert heat over six matches and cooled off with a refreshing Smirnoff SMASH Vodka Soda post game. Throughout the tournament, fans and viewers were also able to enjoy the bold flavors of SMASH Vodka Soda while cheering on their favorite team.

And it was all for a good cause. This year’s Desert Smash event benefited Charlize Theron’s eponymous foundation, the Charlize Theron African Outreach Project.
