Autumn Cup

The 15th Autumn Cup was held on Saturday, October 15th at Avalon Recreation Association. Normally a 3-day event, the Autumn Cup was shortened to a 1-day format this year due to Hurricane Ian washing out the original weekend. Fortunately, the weather cooperated on the 15th and we had a beautiful day for tennis and the tournament party. Eight clubs/recreation associations competed this year, with Metro Richmond Tennis Club winning for the second year in a row by defeating 2nd place Ridgetop. Congrats to MRTC and thank you to all of the clubs for making this another great event!

The Autumn Cup was started to give the smaller clubs in Richmond a chance to compete for bragging rights while raising money for the RTA’s underserved programs. It has done that and so much more, becoming one of Richmond’s most fun tennis events of the year.

Please check out the RTA Facebook Page for a list of all the sponsors who help make the Autumn Cup such a success.
