Event Details:
JDRF Delaware’s Ace for a Cure tennis tournament and luncheon continues its second year at Wilmington Country Club! In 2015, we are celebrating a decade of tennis as the event first began at Germantown Cricket Club in Philadelphia by Timmi & Jim Vesci, whose daughter has type 1 diabetes. The Vesci Family wanted to rally their tennis community together and raise much-needed research funds for JDRF.

Since the first tournament 10 years ago, Ace for a Cure expanded their tournaments to Merion Cricket Club and Wilmington Country Club, raising more than $325,000 for diabetes research. Don’t miss a great tennis outing and reserve your spot today at JDRF Delaware’s Ace for a Cure tennis tournament at Wilmington Country Club!

When registering to play in the tournament, please indicate your level of play and your doubles’ partner name. We will provide a doubles’ partner for those without a partner.
