    About the Kate McGetrick Memorial Tournament

    The Kate McGetrick Memorial Tournament is an event organized to remember and honor the legacy of an amazing person who dedicated her life and career to helping others. Kate was a beloved member of the community who lost her battle with glioblastoma in 2022. During her career as a Marriage and Family Therapist, Kate used her interpersonal skills to specialize in helping women become empowered to fight through adversity. She took that same approach in her personal life, and in her illness.  If you were a client, friend or teammate, Kate was always there to lend an ear to someone in need, to empathize with them, and to offer her encouragement.

    Kate loved to compete in racquet sports, and cherished the bonds that these sports formed, on and off the courts.  We hope to honor her memory by coming together to play tennis and pickleball, for a cause that Kate would fully support.

    We are pleased to partner with the Women & Family Life Center in Guilford, which helps local women in need through a network of support services, all at no cost to the client. Please consider a contribution in Kate's name to this terrific cause.

    Many thanks to both the Guilford Racquet and Swim Club and the Madison Beach Club for donating use of their facilities for the event!
