lexus holds wii tourney at the rock

From September 4-6, Lexus will be staging the Lexus Virtual Open at Rockefeller Plaza, an event which will let Wii tennis fans compete for the chance to win a one-year lease on the Lexus IS-F (a sexy new sedan scheduled for a Spring 2008 release).

ESPN commentator Luke Jensen (above) will be on-site to emcee. And to make sure everyone is wearing their wrist straps.

They’ve erected a scaled-down version of a true tennis stadium (complete with bleachers!) for the competition. Absolutely no living room furniture in sight.

The two highest scorers will vie for the car, and additional prizes will be given out to others, including tickets to watch the US Open semifinals and finals in Lexus’ luxury suite. Also, Lexus will donate $1 to the Andy Roddick Foundation for every ace hit (up to $30,000).

Details: 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily; the event is free and open to the public. Participants can sign up on-site to play. For more information, visit www.myownpursuit.com. And TSF’ers: if you participate, make sure to tell us!
