Tennis Anyone? Renovated Tennis Courts Enhance Campus

Tennis Dedication(Media, PA, May 3, 2011) Tennis anyone? Members of the tennis team at Delaware County Community College participated in a ceremony that was held on April 20, 2011 to recognize the generosity of the Ethel Sergeant Clark Smith Memorial Fund in renovating the College’s six tennis courts.

 “Thanks to the Memorial Fund, we were able to enhance an athletic program that provides competition and recreation for the College community and beyond,” stated College President Dr. Jerry Parker. “These improvements offer more opportunities for community members, local tournaments, and intercollegiate competition,” added Parker.

Ethel Sergeant Clark Smith was a tennis devotee, who loved the game and its sportsmanship, and wanted to preserve the sport in its finest sense. She was a prominent member of Philadelphia society and her love of tennis led to her establishing the United States Lawn Tennis Association Girls’ Sportsmanship Trophy and the Middle States Lawn Tennis Association Tournament. The Ethel Sergeant Clark Smith Memorial Fund, formed in 1977 from her estate (managed by Wachovia Bank, N.A.), benefits organizations located in Southeastern Pennsylvania, with primary emphasis on serving community needs in Delaware County.
