The VCU Athletic Department and the Ram Athletic Fund hosted the Richmond Values Tennis Tournament that was sponsored by Janney Montgomery Scott, LLC, on Saturday, Jan. 13 at the Thalhimer Tennis Center. The event raised $30,000 and the proceeds of the event will benefit the building of a public world-class indoor/outdoor tennis facility here in Richmond.
The event was capped with The Richmond Values Tennis Tournament, a friendly, co-ed, doubles competition that was open to all player levels. The tournament paired local tennis players with VCU tennis team members for an afternoon of friendly competition. There were 40 participants in the youth clinic, a new addition to the day, and 20 teams participated in the tournament.
In addition to the tournament and lunch reception, the day featured hour-long clinics will for children and adults. The clinics were led by VCU Tennis Head Coach Paul Kostin with assistance from players on the VCU Men’s and Women’s Tennis teams.
