The 2017 SK Racquets for Research

Our Founders and Inspiration

For our founders, The Kehoe Family, the fight against cancer is a personal one, and they'll never stop working on behalf of survivors everywhere.  A friend to everyone, Tracey serves as an inspiration to enjoy each day that we are given while sharing her experiences and strengths with friends and the community when in need. As a survivor herself, she vows to do her part as a survivor, and help others who are still in the battle. Braedon, a local tennis player and student at South Kingstown High School, gives his time as President of the Youth Board to give back to families who have to undergo similar experiences as he did. His brother, Connor, is one of the best high school doubles players in the state of Rhode Island. Braedon and Connor founded our youth tournament.

3rd Annual SK Racquets for Research as Fun as Ever

The 2016 SK Racquets for Research had spirited participation at all ages.  The atmosphere is competitive, but with a smile.  Three years and counting with no broken racquets and no umpire abuses.  The only sour faces are at the Del's cooler.
