2016 Wrap up

The 12th Annual Mary Diaz & William Copeland Jr. Memorial Tennis Tournament raised over $65,000!  Friday night, July 22nd, more than 50 enthusiastic tennis players came out to enjoy doubles drills in anticipation of tournament play the next day. Special thanks to Wilson Sporting Goods for donating a racket, t-shirts, hats and towels, also to Ty Tucker, coach of The Ohio State Men’s Tennis team, for donating tennis apparel as prizes. 

On Saturday over 120 players competed in women’s, men’s and mixed doubles round robin play at the Ohio State University.   Division prizes were generously donated by Tennis Warehouse and Cathy & John Benninger.
