    Wayne Raquet Club hosted Rally for the Cure this past Saturday, September 27th. This was a fabulous community event with some fun and some serious tennis. Participants enjoyed some great special events (clock your serve w/radar, beat the pro, hit the bull's-eye and others) plus other activities (ping-pong, beanbag toss, ladder golf) for players and non-players. We had great goody bags and tons of prizes - not to mention fantastic food.
