Please join us for the second annual MAK Games, a tennis tournament that benefits the MAK Center for Art and Architecture at the Schindler House. Enjoy cocktails, bar-b-que, music, and tours of the house while cheering on your favorite team.

Tournament players are a diverse array of artists, architects, writers, musicians, actors, directors, curators, and other cultural figures—all of whom nourish a serious passion for tennis and a fierce desire to win the MAK Cup.
