Sea Colony’s indoor courts will be rockin’ Saturday evening, March 19, for the center’s annual March Madness free tennis event and fundraiser.
Open to the public for all ages and skill levels, March Madness features music, food and games, including fast-serve, slow-serve and accuracy contests, complete with prizes from 7 to 9 p.m., with free play and social from 9 to 10 p.m.
Held on the indoor courts at the Sea Colony Tennis Center, located at the crossroads of West Way Drive and Kent Avenue, just south of Bethany Beach, all proceeds from this year’s March Madness event will benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Dagsboro.
“This event is always a lot of fun and a celebration of tennis and the area’s tennis community —all ages and skill levels,” said Thomas Johnston, Sea Colony tennis director. “We’ve had toddlers barely able to hold a racquet to veterans in their 70s sharing the court in past years. Now that the dust has settled from the expansion, we’re excited that this fun-filled night can also raise money for the Boys & Girls Club of Dagsboro.”
March Madness is free; however, players are asked to donate to the Boys & Girls Club.
The Sea Colony tennis center features six indoor, 14 Har-Tru clay and 14 hard-surface courts, a full-service pro shop and facilities and instruction for all ages and skill levels. The public can participate in the center’s daily adult and junior tennis clinics, weekend camps and private lessons. Individual and family memberships are also available.
In the last few years, Sea Colony has earned local, national and global tennis honors. In May 2015, Tennis Resorts Online’s annual Top 100 camps and resorts reader poll named Sea Colony the No. 9 tennis camp in the world and No. 5 for junior programs, as well as a Top 50 resort. In 2012, the facility was named an Outstanding Facility of the Year by the USTA. Also in that year, Tennis magazine listed Sea Colony as one of its Top 50 American Resorts, including No.3 in the Mid-Atlantic.
