Wendy Whibley & Lauren Banerd winners of the PTC Mixed Doubles Tournament with Jack Shepe & Bob Brownell
SATURDAY, JUNE 23RD
7 teams played in the first PTC Mixed Doubles Tournament. After playing a super set game to determine the 2 flights 4 teams were in the Wimbledon Group and 3 in the French Open Group where each team played every other team. As the temperatures heated up so did the players. After the last point was scored we had our champions.
Winners of the French Open group were Wendy Strachan & Butch Short.
Winners of the Wimbledon Group and the PTC Doubles Bowl were Wendy Whibley & Lauren Banerd who joined our club 3 years ago and play mostly on the weekends.
Pictures of all the players are in the Photo’s section of our web site.
Congratulations to all and thanks to Bob Brownell for arranging the draws and Jack Shepe for coordinating the play and barbequing the burgers for lunch.
Hopefully we’ll have more teams next year.
