Dedicated to the Memory of Donnie Dudley
A foundation has been established to honor the memory of Don Dudley Jr. The foundation will help bring tennis to kids throughout the area that might not otherwise have the opportunity to play. The foundation plans on holding a joint junior and adult tournament in honor of Donny. They are also designing a t-shirt – proceeds to benefit the foundation. Also in the works, is a fundraising at one of the Union College athletic events. Niskayuna High School will have a scholarship in Donny’s honor and there will be a plaque. Mail contributions should be addressed to:
Donny Dudley Tennis Foundation
P. O. Box 2943
Glenville, NY 12325
Hopefully,online contributions will be set up soon.

On behalf of all the members of the Bethlehem tennis community, I pass along our deep sadness and hope for healing for all touched by the tragic loss of Donnie. Donnie was a fierce and respectful opponent, and my thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends, teammates and Coach Jim Neal.

You were a great teammate, doubles partner and friend. Ill never forget the times we had together from trips to matches on the bus to our run in sectionals and states. It was an honor to be your teammate and friend and I know you are in a better place. Rest in Peace Donny
