Tournament Update

So we ended up with 41 players for this year’s Four Wall Turkey Brawl tournament not bad at all. There were a couple of divisions that were combined (Open/Elite) and (A/B), and once again there will be only one age event which will be a four-person round robin. And we’ll have 8 juniors shooting it out. Again times are really tight due to having only 5 courts so show up early ready to play or if available we can always use some help refereeing a match or two.

Final Thoughts:

A Big Thank You to Jackie Seiffert & Michelle LeKites for all their work at the tournament desk and to Sharon Keaveny for our Turkey lunch on Saturday afternoon, along with everyone who brought a dish to share (There were some tasty ones for sure). Our overall player numbers were up a little with again a few new faces, Welcome to all of you. Our goal for the December tournament is to again increase our player numbers so we don’t have to combine so many divisions, Let’s shoot for 50. 

 

After sitting out the first tournament of the 2018-19 season Fidencio Rodriguez let his presence be known by winning the Men’s Open singles against Tom Hood 15-12 15-7 and then teamed up with Tom in the Open doubles finals where they came up a little short to Brandon Cuaresma & Keith Boice 15-12 15-8.  In the Mixed Open Terri Marceron & Joe Law defeated last months winning team of Cathy Law & Jimmy Stewart an 11-6 tie-breaker.
