Summit, NJ
Many junior players go off to college and don't find time for paddle. In an effort to "bring them back" a group of pros is offering College 101 paddle events at holiday times. On January 4, Mike Gillespie and Patty Hogan will host a College 101 event at Canoe Brook Country Club in Summit, NJ. All players (or potential players) 17 and older are invited to attend this fun, free afternoon event. Contact Mike or Patty for more info, or just show up at Canoe Brook between 2:00 and 4:00 that day.

Women's 70+ Nationals
10-29-2014
APTA Jack-o-Lantern

Essex Fells, NJ
Helen Garrett and Sandy Simmers have to go down in the record books as one of the most successful teams ever in senior platform tennis play. Once again they claimed the gold medals at the Women's 70+ National Championships, held today at the Essex Fells Country Club. Thanks to Carolyn Tierney for "making it happen" - all who have been involved know that it is a giant juggling feat to end up with 8 teams for this event! Silver medalists were Ginny Sniatkowski & Thelma Huber. Anke Cornell & Gail Condon finished in 3rd place, edging Dolores Krzanowski & Birgit Maio in the playoff match.

Mixed Masters
3-31-2014
Mixed Masters

Bethlehem, PA
It rained and it rained and it rained...it was only 3 days, not 40, but we think that the fact that the film "Noah" was opening this weekend must have had something to do with the weather for the Mixed Masters held at Saucon Valley Country Club! On Friday, the 60+ Mixed Nationals featured 8 teams and a lot of fun while dodging raindrops. Gold medalists Diane Straus Tucker & Scott Estes already have an impressive array of medals, and added another at the expense of Connie Jones & Ken Persson. Saturday was the day for the 50+ Mixed Nationals, and as the weather got sloppier the play got more intense. In the end, sister-brother duo Laurie Hissey & Tim McAvoy repeated as champs, defeating Bobo Delaney & Mike Gillespie. Sunday's Husband-Wife 50+ tournament featured 16 teams who travelled from as far as Massachusetts and Ohio to compete for the gold. For the third day in a row we had #1 vs #2 in the finals, with Heather & Vince Prop defeating Cynthia & Ken Dardis for the crown.
