Think it's easy to hit a tennis ball with the same wooden racquet that many of us grew up with? Think again. With a "sweet spot" about the size of a tennis ball, even those of us who think we have "game," were tested in this year's Woods & Whites Classic. After three abbreviated sets of no-add scoring, the victors were Debbie Norton and John Harding. A delicious meal with a variety of appetizers, salads, and grilled brats, burgers and dogs followed. Our thanks to Al & Pam Hero who organize this annual event and to Al who provides his collection of wooden racquets for use by players and grills up a tasty meal!
Woods & Whites Classic Tests Skills
The First Family Combo Tennis event was held on Saturday morning, August 3rd. Four courts were filled
with competitive and lively teams. Seasoned players, college players, high school and middle school players, even fairly new to tennis players, and all related to their partner.
The family feud format had the Pink and Blue Teams competing for prizes. Champs for the Pink Team were Fred Churchill and nephew, Ben Kallman and for the Blue, Grace Harding and grandson, Thomas Rezendes. Finalists for the Pink team were Lida LLoyd and son Stratton Lloyd, and for the Blue Team, John Rezendes & Timothy Churchill. Fun prizes were awarded and Catherine Towner won. The "travelled the furthest", was from Houston, TX. All enjoyed fresh fruit, breakfast muffins , lemonade & tea.
