2005 Senior Nationals
4-03-2005

Englewood, NJ
Even torrential rains couldn’t postpone the annual reunion known as the Senior Men’s National Championships. Players from each of the APTA’s six regions participated in this event, held this year at the Englewood Field Club in New Jersey. full tournament details


On Friday, 16 teams vied for the 60+ National title. Hank Irvine and Doug Russell again proved themselves the class of the field, defeating Steve Bromley and Steve Griggs by a score of 6-2, 6-1. Griggs and Bromley upset 2 seeded teams en route to their encounter with the top seeds.

Saturday dawned wet and ugly, and the weather didn’t improve as the day wore on. All but one of the registered teams showed up to play, with the 50+ and 70+ National crowns on the line.

Rich Lombard returned to the court following coronary bypass surgery in December, and paired with Bill Childs to claim the gold medals in the 70+ category, defeating top seeds Bob Brown and Howard Sipe 6-2, 6-2.

Team Chicago, Jean Kempner and Jim McNitt, prevailed over Hank Irvine and Jeff Hodges (aka Dr. Detroit) in the 50+ division by scores of 6-2, 6-4. Each pair had a close call competing against an upset-minded team playing in the rain on Saturday, but managed to uphold their seedings.

Many thanks to Ken Persson, Caryl Swain and the staff at Englewood Field club for all of their work – and the many dry towels they supplied on Saturday!
