Announcing the singles champions of 2021!
On Thursday evening, Sam Gaines was crowned as our new men's A singles champion, with runner-up Chris Stevens (6-1, 6-0). Thanks to Mike Tasi for being their umpire.
Last Tuesday evening, Erika Goss went up against Mary Wylde for the Women's A Singles Title. It was a great match and both sides played well. Mary Wylde's consistency in returning every ball was amazing, resulting in some very long points. In the end, it was Erika's powerful strokes and placement that won the match 6-3, 6-4. Congratulations to our new women's singles champion and runner-up!
For the Senior Men, Steve Edwards held off Phil Scott for the title in a contentious match (7-6, 6-4) on Sunday morning.
The B singles tournament was run on Sunday in a fun and competitive round robin format. Each tournament had four competitors and the matches were played in an 8-game format with no ad.
For the Men’s B, Alan Thorndike began the first round but retired early when Jean Drolet entered the round robin late. The action quickly heated up with Bo Graves and George Gay competing for the most games won. In the end, Bo’s strong serve and powerful forehand allowed him to secure the win with 16 games in total. George came in a close second with 15 games, with Jean Drolet and Max Biedermann with 10 and 7 games respectively.
For the Women’s B, a quick shout out to Lilli Biedermann for joining the round robin at the last minute to ensure an even number of entrants. It was a tight race to the top between Julia Biedermann’s powerful forehand and punishing serve versus Deb Schoepke’s incredible consistency, chasing down every ball. In the end, Julia wrapped things up with 18 games won to Deb’s 17. Olivia Stevens and Lilli Biedermann won 8 and 5 games respectively.
Congrats Bo Graves and Julia Biedermann for your B Singles titles!
Special thanks to Pam and Mike for being the umpires.
