The Western Kenosha County Tennis Association (WKCTA) is kicking-off it's 6th Season of Summer Tennis with a purpose.  Each year we attempt to do something unique and fresh to popularize the great sport of tennis to our Community.

WHAT:                A 24 hour Tennis Rally: We are looking to keep a tennis ball going back and forth
                           over the net for 24 hours.  Time records will be kept for the longest rally and we hope
                           to submit our event for a Guiness Community Record. Participants are asked to bring a "non-                           perishable" food item to be donated to the Sharing Center or provide a monetary donation
                           for the American Cancer Society of Kenosha.  See the detailed Event Activities at the left.

WHEN:               Beginning Saturday, May 3 @ 3:00pm
                           Ending Sunday, May 4 @ 3:00pm

WHERE:            Westosha Central High School Tennis Courts (Hwy 83)

WHY:                 To raise funds to benefit the American Cancer Society in Kenosha County
                           & collect food items to benefit the Sharing Center.

WHO:                  Any able bodied tennis players, no matter the age.  We are also looking for cancer
                            survivors or those battling cancer to help us kick-off the event.  Please emails us
                            at if you are a survivor and would like to participate in the 
                            "Survivors Kick-Off".

HOW:                  Register for (FREE) and sign up for a time frame where you can come
                            out and keep a rally going with other players.

We are seeking Corporate, Individual or Family sponsors for this event.  Sponsors will be recognized during, the event and in all our of our materials.  Your sponsorship is tax-deductible.

The weekend will culminate with our annual Tennis Block Party on Sunday, May 4 from 1pm-3pm.  We will have tennis games, food and other activities designed to get you involved into tennis.  We will also be taking registrations for any of our Summer Programs.   You can view our full schedule of programs at

Funds raised through the "Rally For Life" will benefit the Relay For Life of Kenosha which helps the 3,691 Kenosha residents (on average) that are diagnosed with cancer each year. After 100 years of saving lives, the American Cancer Society is more committed than ever to making this cancer’s last century. Specifically in 2012 in Kenosha County, the American Cancer Society directly answered 409 patient-related information requests that included questions about treatment options, transportation assistance, patient programs and support services. Additionally, the American Cancer Society provided a total of 699 patient-related services to the residents of Kenosha.  On the registration page, you may also purchase luminaries.

In addition to patient programs and services, residents in Kenosha benefit from the American Cancer Society’s
cancer-fighting strategies that include:

  • Developing and providing prevention and early detection
    guidelines for recommended cancer screenings, nutrition and physical activity
  • Investing in cancer research—we are the largest private
    funder of cancer research in the US, and second only to the federal government
    in total dollars spent
  • Advocating for public policies like smoke free laws,
    increased funding for cancer research and access to quality health care.
