FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RODNEY STREET TENNIS AND TUTORING ASSOCIATION
COMCAST FAMILY OF COMPANIES RETURNS AS PRINCIPAL SPONSOR
Wilmington, DE (January 2013) - Rodney Street Tennis and Tutoring Association (RSTTA),
Comcast Corporation and Comcast-Spectacor are pleased to announce that the Comcast Family of
Companies will continue as the charity’s Principal Sponsor in 2013.
"If it matters in our community, it matters to Comcast-Spectacor,” said Comcast-Spectacor Charities
Chairman Fred Shabel. “Wilmington is an important community to our company as many of our
fans and customers travel from Wilmington to events at Wells Fargo Center. We are pleased to
continue our support of an organization that is clearly making a difference to the children, youth and
families in one of our local communities."
“RSTTA is building the leaders of tomorrow by providing youth with quality educational programs
that serve them both intellectually and physically,” said Bill Black, vice president and executive
director of the Comcast Foundation. “Comcast is pleased to renew our sponsorship with the
organization as it continues to improve lives for children in Wilmington.”
Rodney Street Tennis and Tutoring Association, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization founded in
1979 as a USTA NJTL Chapter uses the sport of tennis as its hook to provide innovative educational
enrichment programs to over 300 at-risk youth in the City of Wilmington, Delaware, providing year-
round after-school and out-of-school summer tutoring and healthy recreational activities.
“We are thrilled that the Comcast Family of Companies is continuing as RSTTA’s Principal Sponsor.
This support is essential to the success of our on-going programs,” said RSTTA Chairman Bill
RSTTA’s mission is building lives through tennis and education.
RSTTA provides quality out-of-school programs for inner-city youth. It is during the out-of-school
hours when children would otherwise have little or no adult supervision and are most vulnerable to
high-risk activities. A steady increase in drop-out rates, delinquency and juvenile crime in virtually
every Wilmington neighborhood underscores this urgency. Through structured activities in a safe
environment, Rodney Street Tennis & Tutoring equips children with the skills they need to become
productive citizens and to achieve their life goals.
