The VCU Athletic Department and the Ram Athletic Fund hosted the Richmond Values Tennis Tournament presented by Janney Montgomery Scott, LLC., on Jan. 12 at the Thalhimer Tennis Center. The event raised over $32,000 and the proceeds 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 35 participants in the youth clinic, which was conducted by Pat Anderson, and 20 teams participated in the tournament.
The event included a lunch reception that was catered by Metro Grill and an hour-long adult clinic. The adult clinic was led by VCU Tennis Head Coach Paul Kostin with assistance from players on the VCU Men’s and Women’s Tennis teams.
