Tour des Courts

Sixty one teams competed in the 23rd annual Tour des Courts on Saturday, September 6. The weather was perfect and the tennis enjoyable. After playing at private courts throughout the area during the day, players and guests returned to the Delaware Tennis Center at Bellevue State Park for a barbecue and the finals of the three divisions. Around $4000 was raised for the Delaware Tennis Foundation (DTF), the funding arm of the Delaware District through sponsorships, registrations, and raffles. Programs supported by DTF include everything from youth at risk inner city programs to Special Olympics, to elite training programs such as the Competitive Training Center. It also is a major supporter of the Delaware Tennis Center, host for 13 tournaments, numerous USTA League matches, NJTL regional rally, World Team Tennis recreational league, USTA Jr. Team Tennis, and many other events..
