2015 Mixed Mixer Tournament:
March 21, 2015
We had perfect weather, cool temperature with a high cloud cover, on Saturday morning, March 21st for our first Club tournament of the year, the Mixed-Mixer Round Robin. The tournament was well attended with 24 players participating. It was great to meet so many new club players. The tournament consisted of three flights: 3.0, 3.5, and 4.0 where players had changed partners every round. Since the 4.0 flight was heavy with men, they guys were able to play a “gentleman’s” round with women partners, and a “rip it” round consisting of all guys. The balls were flying on court 2! The tennis playing was followed by a delicious, healthy, and splendid Salad Bar luncheon, provided by Kellee Mockabee. The luncheon included grilled chicken, tri-tip and many veggie choices. Howard Watanabe our “grill master” was also busy cooking up juicy hamburgers. Wine, beer, and a variety of desserts were included for the bargain price of $20. Great way to welcome Spring!
Here are the winners:
4.0 Flight: Men's: Robert Pitts
4.0 Flight: Women's: Lynda Zhang
3.5 Flight: Men's: Rodrigo Alonso
3.5 Flight: Women's: Jeanne Killam
3.0 Flight: Men's: Amir Solimani
