Nantucket Mixed Invitational
10-22-2004
Nantucket Paddle

Nantucket MA
The Nantucket Mixed Invitational Tournament has a long standing tradition of great paddle and great fun. For over 15 years, NPTA has hosted this wonderful event, welcoming old friends and newcomers year after year. The paddle is competitive, the food is fantastic, and the friendships formed are long lasting. Participation has declined over the past several years, and we're trying to renew interest in this special weekend. We will have to cancel the tournament again this year if there is not enough interest, so please consider coming to Nantucket Nov 13-14, 2004 for a beautiful fall weekend - you won't be disappointed! - Margaretta Andrews

Nantucket Mixed Invitational 2004

Welcome once again to the long-standing Nantucket Mixed Invitational Tournament! We hope that our old friends, as well as new players, will be able to come. Registration forms are available on the APTA website at www.platformtennis.org. Please consider coming to the island for this terrific weekend – this tournament is in danger of going away forever if we continue to see declining participation!!

Each team is guaranteed four rounds of play, weather permitting. The team fee of $150 includes continental breakfast and lunch at the courts on Saturday and Sunday, and beer/wine/cheese on Saturday evening at the hut. NOTE: Because Saturday lunch is catered, please be sure to buy special tickets (see registration form) if you are bringing a non-playing spouse or friend.

Because it can be difficult to get to the Island due to fog/uncertain weather, every player must be on-Island by Friday night to be eligible to play on Saturday. Failure by a team to show up for a scheduled match will result in that team being disqualified from the tournament (and we all know what that does to the entire draw!). In addition, players should be prepared to stay until at least mid-afternoon on Sunday as final matches for all flights will be held throughout the day.

Registration forms and entry fees are due no later than Wednesday, November 5th. This applies to on-Island teams as well as our visiting players! If we have not received your form and money by 11/5, you will not be included in the tournament.

On Friday evening, all three courts will be reserved for informal play. You may register between 6-8 PM - please make every effort to come by so we can deliver any last minute changes/start times/etc. For those of you who are coming for the first time, NPTA is located about a mile outside of town at 1Polpis Road (dirt driveway immediately after the Islander Liquor Store). You will need a rental car, taxi or a ride from one of the local members to get to the courts. The telephone number in the hut is 508-228-5406. For questions about the draw/starting times, please contact Margaretta Andrews at 508-228-3767/margarettaandrews@comcast.net.

So...please get that registration in right away, make reservations, call the dog sitter, baby sitter, etc. and pack your gear for a great paddle weekend!
