Fun for Everyone at the Racquets for Research Media Day!

The Racquets for Research Media Day this year was a resounding success. Major television and media networks sent representatives, such as Carolina 14’s morning anchor Tracey Early, to participate in The V Foundation’s annual event at the Raleigh Racquet Club. Teaching pros included Tim ‘Dr. Dirt’ Wilkison, winner of six singles titles and nine doubles championships, and was ranked the #1 junior in the nation when he was just 17. The day’s temperature soared well into the 90’s but the players stayed a solid two hours on court, ending with a ladder doubles tournament that was enjoyed by all.
