Game. Set. Youth

The one night you can't lose on the court!

Game. Set. Youth

In celebration of 10 years of impact on Richmond area youth, we invite the community to join us on October 6, 2018 for an evening of celebration, recognition and support of youth programming.

  • Celebrate: a decade of milestones for youth programming in Richmond.
  • Recognize: the event will honor three dynamic individuals who have supported the development of youth tennis programming through their contributions to the success of the Mary and Frances Youth Center and Richmond Tennis Association’s mission.
  • Support: local youth by raising funds for scholarships for afterschool programming, summer camps and tennis clinics.

Participants will enjoy food, beverages and an awards ceremony, in a unique atmosphere on the tennis courts. Walk down the green carpet and capture the moment/spotlight with friends at the VIP wall. Step up to the baseline and serve an Ace to score a prize for yourself and local youth. We will be serving up some raffle opportunities throughout the evening. This will certainly be a night at the net to remember!

Beneficiaries: Mary and Frances Youth Center is a vital organization to the community, providing programming and training to enhance the lives of youth in the greater Richmond area. The Center strives to be a leader in university-community collaboration for positive youth development. The Center houses two direct youth programs (one of which is Lobs & Lessons, a nationally awarded NJTL) and two non-direct youth initiatives. Richmond Tennis Association is one of the oldest and most successful community tennis organizations in the United States, having been named tennis organization of the year by the USTA and USTA/Mid-Atlantic Section during its existence. The RTA organizes and operates a variety of tennis programs and events throughout the year for tennis players of all ages and abilities.
