The Women's Singles Championship was held yesterday at the South Yarmouth Tennis Club. Sisters Joanne O'Bryan (Pictured center right) and Jane Bleckinger (Pictured center left) played for the title. The ground strokes were amazing and the rallies long with many shots placed squarely on the lines. Joanne proved the winner in 2 straight sets!!!! Prizes were awarded to both players by Board members Lida Lloyd (Pictured left) and Cindy Noble (Pictured right.)
Joanne O'Bryan (Pictured right, center) and Jane Bleckinger (Pictured right, right) teamed up in a close and exciting match for the Doubles Championship. Their opponents, Anne Castine (Pictured left, left) and Mary Butler,(Pictured left, right) lost the first set, and then won the second set, thus setting up the final set which was the 10 point Coman tiebreaker. Joanne and Jane prevailed, winning 10-8. It was excellent
and exciting tennis!
They met at the appointed playing time and survived - - - nay, they THRIVED in the dim light of a 70% total solar eclipse. This group has made it through a lot worse this summer.
