Lou deLisser is a dear friend of Club & Court. Lou is known around town for planning pre-season tennis trips to warm, sunny destinations. These tennis trips are terrific for brushing up on our skills after a long winter, but even more importantly they are a wonderful bonding experience for the team!
While Lou is a true southern belle at heart, she currently resides on the Main Line of Philadelphia with her husband. Her daughter, Mimi, now lives in NYC. Lou is an avid tennis player, and Mimi plays tennis as well as collegiate squash.
Not only is Lou gracious and athletic, but she also owns her own business, Lou deLisser Travel - a luxury travel company affiliated with Virtuoso. Lou plans travel to every destination globally, but also specializes in Africa and safaris. Visit her websites Lou deLisser Travel and Ultimate Luxury Safaris for inspiration and to plan your next trip! (Pro tip: She is also great at planning special “Mother – Daughter” vacations, as she did for a group of recent graduates and their moms, with all of the daughters enthusiastically saying it was the best trip of their lives!)
