LANDFALL FOUNDATION
LEGENDS OF TENNIS 2019

Celebrity Tennis Tournament


After a three-year hiatus The Legends of Tennis is back in 2019!!  Please join the Landfall Foundation in making the 2019 tournament the best Legends of Tennis ever.

We are excited to announce that former # 1 ranked American player Mardy Fish will be here along with tennis legends Luke Jensen, Bret Garnett, Bobby Reynolds, Mikael Pernfors, Ellis Ferrara, Jimmy Arias and TJ Middleton. This is the strongest field in the history of the Legends tournament with 3 former world top ten singles players and 5 that have either won Grand Slam titles or have been All American collegiate players!  World renowned tennis commentator and Wilmington native Sam Gore of ESPN will emcee the event.

This community event will take place at the Country Club of Landfall’s newly renovated Drysdale Sports Center.  Mark your calendars now for the weekend of September 13-14.

The Landfall Foundation invites you to become a Legends sponsor and support our greater Wilmington community.  Proceeds from Legends of Tennis are returned to the community in the form of Foundation grants to non-profit organizations in the areas of Education, Health and Welfare, and the Arts.   Since its inception in 1995, the Landfall Foundation has granted more than $4.7 million to Wilmington area non-profit organizations and more than $200,000 to 106 scholarship recipients.  In 2018, the Foundation funded more than $500,000 in grants and scholarships, including $50,000 emergency funds in November 2018 designated for hurricane relief. 

Help us make 2019 a record-breaking success! Contact Sam Catlett, Co-Chair of the Legends of Tennis committee, at 910-509-2178 or tennis@landfallfoundation.org with any questions.

 Thank you for your support,
