Recap: March Tournament

Wow, what a beautiful weekend we were treated to!  Perfect temperatures and no wind, even on the Quay Courts.  There was no excuse not to play our best tennis!


Well, except March Team Tennis was the FIRST tournament of the season, so we had some rust to knock off.  With only 18 players, everybody got LOTS of tennis to do just that.


Ivan Quinones, tournament organizer, put together 4 teams, captained by Karen Brodersen, Sundar Venkateswaran, Tom Salles, and John JordanIn keeping with RSTC’s philosophy of fun in the sun, the captains cooperated in trying to make match-ups that would be competitive.  The scores reflected Ivan and the captains efforts as 3 teams ended up with very close scores: 46, 44, and 43 games won.  Sundar's team won with 59.  Congratulations to Sundar, Steve Hogan, Eric Nielsen, Don Smith, and Laurie Coleman.  The prizes assembled by Janice Carter will be useful all year – a handy canvas bag (with dividers to hold 6 bottles of wine at another time) was stuffed with tennis essentials, including balls, a first aid kid, headband, etc.


Barb Urrutia provided courtside refreshments.  Paparazzi were John Hogan, Laurie Coleman, Ling Shee, Janice Carter, Sundar Venkateswaran, Janice Carter, and me. 


The Mixed Scramble Tournament is April 24.  Registration is open for members now and will be open for non-members a week before the event.


Finally, fyi, Redwood Shores courts are being cleaned and resurfaced this week by the City of Redwood City.  The courts are scheduled to be closed this week and reopened by the weekend.  I don’t know how rain will affect the project.
