All finals were played under steady rain. However, fine racquets skills and outstanding athletisism were under display by all players; as the good crowd of spectators were very much entertained by the high caliber play.

This 60 team 3 day Senior Championships were expertly produced by Richard Lombard of Sleepy Hollow who also competed in two of the events.

Saturday evening's elegant tournament dinner was the perfect venue to induct two very deserving new members to the APTA's Platform Tennis Hall of Fame;  Dick Squires and Bob Kingsbury.
