The 49th Morrow: A Paddle Party with A Tournament January 28-30, 2022 Wilmington, DE

Welcome to the official website of the Richard R. P. Morrow Invitational Platform Tennis Tournament. The tournament, which began in 1974 as the Tri-Club Mixed, was renamed in 1985 to celebrate and honor the memory of Dick Morrow. It is more than a tournament. It is a three-day winter celebration which has seen over 900 different players participate over the years.  The paddle tennis matches are held at four local clubs. There are 3, and sometimes 4, divisions based on skill level and experience. Play starts Friday evening, continues all day on Saturday, and ends with at least 12 Finals on Sunday. All teams play at least three matches. The level of play goes from beginners to national champions, and everything in between. The celebration includes a Friday night cocktail party and a Saturday evening dinner/dance.
