Delaware's Nancy Keiper Announces Retirement May 23, 2013 12:40 PM Tweet
Nancy Keiper Player, coach, teacher and volunteer. If you ask the feelings of people who have been associated with her, even those words won't completely describe what Nancy Keiper has contributed to tennis. From the first time she played the game at the age of 8, to her 16 years as Executive Secretary of the Delaware District, to her final Middle States role as Tennis Service Representative (TSR) for that district, Keiper has been a whirlwind of activity and success. After more than 60 years of using her love affair with tennis to inspire countless others, Keiper decided to retire, effective June 1. Once described as "a pied piper for grassroots tennis", Keiper's "whirlwind" may be winding down, but it is clear to all who know her that her influence will continue on. "I enjoyed every minute of my job. All I remember are great things," said Keiper. Working with the people in Delaware, and all throughout Middle States, has been incredible. I believe tennis is the best sport there is. I know the lessons it teaches you and what it can do for an individual, a family - really anyone. I honestly believe in the USTA and every one of its programs." After playing tennis at Haverford High School, Nancy went on to co-captain the Drexel University team, also serving as captain of the badminton team and President of the Women's Athletic Association. Her many accomplishments at Drexel led to her installation in the school's Hall of Fame. As a high school coach at Archmere Academy, Nancy was twice named Delaware Coach of the Year and once Middle States Coach of the Year, winning three state titles and sharing in another. She also won a state title with the girls' team at Springfield, Pa. As a player, Nancy experienced success at all levels, particularly as a senior. She won a gold medal in doubles at the U.S. National Senior Olympics in 1995, and a silver medal in that same event in 1993. In the very competitive USTA League Tennis program, she was part of three national title-winning 4.5 teams. It has been at the community level that this "pied piper" has had such a lasting impact. Keiper has helped bring tennis to underserved populations for more than 30 years through her work with the Wilmington Tennis Foundation and the Rodney Street Tennis & Tutoring Association. These programs have steadily increased from barely 100, to more than 1,000 served today. Before Block parties, Keiper helped create a special event called Tennis In The Streets by setting courts up in the middle of downtown Wilmington. That initial event with a few hundred participants, close to 20 years ago, has morphed into more than 1,000 inner-city kids being bussed in to the city to learn to play tennis. Over the years, Keiper has been instrumental in creating alternative sources of revenue for programs throughout the state of Delaware, helping to raise more than $100,000 for inner-city tennis and education programs for youth at-risk. Keiper's lifelong commitment to helping youngsters through tennis is the key motivation for all that she has set out to do and accomplish. She has been an excellent role model for adults and youth alike, and in 2003 she was inducted into the Middle States Hall of Fame. Even while retired, Keiper won't stop talking about tennis. Her passion for helping kids won't disappear, and her interest in the game won't drop. She said she'll miss working with the people in the community on a daily basis, but feels comfortable leaving the TSR duties for someone else to take on. "It's been a wonderful run, a wonderful experience," Keiper said.
