(Wentworth, NC) – Rockingham Community College was honored as the 2016 Tennis Facility of the Year during the annual United States Tennis Association (USTA) North Carolina Awards Luncheon held in Pinehurst on January 28.

The award is presented each year to a facility displaying quality tennis courts with regulation surfaces, layout, and amenities. The recipient facility must host USTA programs and contribute to the advancement of the sport in North Carolina. Renovations to RCC’s tennis facility included resurfacing the college’s six tennis courts, improving access for the disabled, and the installation of a backboard to allow for individual practice.

Receiving recognition on behalf of Rockingham Community College are (l-r): Dr. Cindy Sarwi, executive director of the RCC Foundation, Dr. Tony Gunn, RCC Associate Vice President, and Shelby Rhyne, executive director of the Rockingham County Tennis Association.

Shelby Rhyne, executive director of the Rockingham County Tennis Association, who received the Tennis Educational Merit of the Year Award for the USTA North Carolina, assisted the college in the effort.

The $67,000 renovation project was funded through a bequest from the estate of Ed and Betty Mooney, grants from the RCC Foundation, the US Tennis Association, and the USTA North Carolina, a contribution from Rockingham County Schools, and college capital funds.

RCC’s tennis facility is used regularly by RCC students, the RCC Eaglemania summer program, Rockingham County Schools tennis teams, county residents, and the Rockingham County Tennis Association.
