The Rodney Street Tennis & Tutoring Association (RSTTA) welcomed tennis great Justin Gimelstob to Wilmington earlier this month at their annual Spring Benefit, attended by more than 300 local tennis players and fans. Gimelstob really played to the crowd, with jokes about his tennis game sprinkled with insight into the upcoming professional tennis season. The cocktail party and auction raised more than $100,000 for the nonprofit RSTTA, which provides year-round tennis instruction and academic tutoring for at-risk youth, helping them to reach their full potential on and off the court. Gimelstob, who was ranked 18th in the world in doubles, is now a commentator for the Tennis Channel.
