Rhonda Blanchard Memorial Shootout
Rhonda Blanchard served as the Men’s and Women’s Tennis Coach at Middle Creek High School from 2009 until her untimely passing in February 2015. She was a great supporter of the game of tennis and loved her school and players. She was also a teacher and advocate for special needs students at Middle Creek. This tournament will honor her memory and raise funds for the Abilities Tennis Association of NC (http://www.atanc.org/) whose mission is to provide and support tennis opportunities for individuals with intellectual disabilities across the state of North Carolina.
