We were excited to have Jay Graham present the GRAHAM CUP this year. The trophy is named for his father who was one of the founders of our league and the League Classic Tournament. We are honored to carry on this great tradition that was started in 1972 and 1978 respectively.
CONGRATS STEVE DEROSE and JAIME FERRIERO they defeated 2 time defending champs Drew Broderick and Pat Shallcross 3-6, 7-5. 6-4 in a tremendous display of paddle by all 4 competitors.
Morris County was a great venue and the club could not have been more accommodating.
Thanks to Vinny, Toddski , and Bill Dunn for manning the grills,and cooking great food for everyone. And thanks to Bill Dunn and Mark Bliss for helping run the draw at short hills.
Lastly thanks to Dave Broderick for helping me put the whole tournament together and handling our finances all year.

DEADLINES FOR POSTING SCORES IS NOW 6 DAYS FROM THE SCHED DATE (new for mon,tues
1) Both captains are responsible for reporting scores, not just the home team. Whichever captain has the time should input the info.
2) As always we ask captains to try and accommodate their opponents if they require a pre or post play.Do not dismiss requests out of hand as you may guys on your team would gladly play on an alternate date. This is not a requirement though, also I have always found that is easier to get the other team to help me out by offering to travel for that specific match. THIS IS NOT A RULE . You are free to negotiate how you wish!
Remember this is about getting the matches before the deadline and having fun (and drinking a cold beer)
Please remember teams are responsible for updating their own captains info as well as rosters.
Any questions or concerns don't hesitate to call me
