Delaware’s “Tennithon” is one of the most exciting and anticipated tennis events of the year. And even though pillows and sleeping bags weren’t necessary this year, the 65 kids who participated weren’t any less enthusiastic to serve, swing and volley for hours and hours to raise funds for the Delaware Tennis Foundation.
The event used to take place “all night” at the DuPont Country Club. But this year’s event was a much more reasonable 6 hours, ending at Midnight on Feb 28. Area tennis pros, who donate their time and the courts, can now get a little sleep even after a marathon night of tennis!
