Tickets are on sale now for a charity tennis event featuring Andy Roddick, Venus Williams, Billie Jean King and Elton John at Walt Disney World.

Mylan WTT Smash Hits, which has raised more than $11.5 million for the Elton John AIDS Foundation and local AIDS charities since 1993, will be held at the HP Field House at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex on Nov. 17. This year's event benefits the foundation and the Hope and Help Center of Central Florida.

The event features a competition between teams captained by King and John. It is Roddick's ninth Smash Hits event; Williams first played in the event in 1997, the last time it was held at Disney World. Additional players will be named later.

Ticket prices range from $50 to $125. VIP packages, including courtside seating and admission to the VIP Reception and Auction, are available for $500, which directly benefits the Hope and Help Center.
