The Cupid Courts Misericordia paddle event was held in early February and, once again, a “smashing” success. This day of non-competitive paddle tennis play has tripled in size over the years. Eight private clubs are now used in the western suburbs for the fundraiser, bringing the paddle tennis community together while supporting a great cause. The event historically raises over $75,000 for Misericordia.

Founded in 1921, Misericordia currently supports 600 children and adults with developmental disabilities in a campus setting rich with activities and opportunities. This most vulnerable population lives in an environment of respect and beauty where they are challenged to be their best, thanks to the loving care of Misericordia staff and volunteers.
