$95,000 Raised for New Scoreboard at UNCG Tennis Courts
GREENSBORO, N.C. – Thanks to donations from former men's and women's tennis players, family and friends, the UNCG tennis program has received a new scoreboard at the UNCG Tennis Courts. More than 40 individuals contributed to the project, helping the UNCG Spartan Club surpass the goal of $95,000.
“I would like to personally thank everybody who helped make this possible.” Director of Tennis Jeff Trivette said, “It is a great addition to our tennis program as we continue to enhance and upgrade our facility to create a championship atmosphere for our student-athletes.”
The tennis programs plan to hold a celebration of tennis event September 9, 2017 to officially dedicate the scoreboard. A plaque will be unveiled recognizing the leadership donors that are listed below. More details about the celebration of tennis event will follow.
Donations can still be made in support of the tennis facility and any gifts at the leadership levels made by June 30, 2017 will be added to the recognition plaque. Additional gifts will be used for several other facility upgrades. Gifts can be made online here or by calling the Spartan Club at (336) 334-3576.
