15th Annual Mary Diaz & William Copeland Jr. Memorial Tennis Tournament
Northam Park, Ohio State University & Elysium Tennis Club, July 19-20, 2019
Thank you to everyone who helped make the 15th annual tournament a success: together we raised nearly $70,000. Please check out the photos from Friday and Saturday, along with some of our division winners and finalists.
Over 100 players came out for drills and dinner Friday night at the Northam Park Tennis Courts. Special thanks to Norma Wagner and the Northam Park Tennis community for sponsoring Friday night dinner and drills. We would also like to thank Fromuth Tennis for the donation of U.S. Open hats and Ty Tucker, coach of The Ohio State Men’s Tennis team, for donating tennis apparel as prizes.
On Saturday 130 players competed in women’s, men’s and mixed doubles round robin play. A shout out to the Crouser Family for providing breakfast courtside! Morning tennis took place at the Ohio State University courts, but once again, thanks to Beth Fitzgerald of Elysium Tennis, we were able to move the tournament indoors in the afternoon to avoid the heat.
This year, division prizes were generously donated by Tennis Warehouse and Cathy and John Benninger. We are grateful for their generosity and the continued support of all our sponsors and in-kind donors.
