The tournament will take place on Friday, March 3rd through Sunday, March 5th at Holly Tree Racquet & Swim Club.

All proceeds from the event will benefit Wilmington’s local Domestic Violence Shelter and Services, Inc. (DVSS).

Last year over 200 players participated and raised over $17,000 for DVSS. So far, more than 100 players across 19 teams have signed up for the upcoming event. Players will once again compete in co-ed teams with eligible league winners advancing to the National Qualifier.

“The Impact Team Tennis format of the event serves as a symbolic nod to the strength of women and men coming together to support a common cause,” said Candy Pegram, Community Coordinator, GWTA.
