Seventy-five determined and tireless tennis players played six hours of non-stop tennis at the DuPont Country Club on March 5th for the annual Delaware Tennithon benefiting the Delaware Tennis Foundation.  

From beginners to high school varsity players, kids could be seen having fun on all of the six indoor courts.  The entire teaching staff at DuPont Country Club donated their time to the cause, and head tennis pro Tim Fitzgerald drove straight to the Tennithon from the airport, having just returned from vacation.

DCC Tennis Director Rob Wirth was seen still offering teaching advice right up to midnight. “Lift your arm up and over your shoulder,” he told a few of the younger players who hadn’t quite mastered the forehand stroke. Greenville Country Club pros Shane Racine and Jackie Roe also came and helped on the courts as did many other seasoned tennis veterans.

And new this year, the Women’s Tennis Team at Goldey-Beacom College joined the festivities.
