2019 Turkey Tennis Social
The Tennis Turkeys were out on the courts to celebrate the upcoming holiday and play some tennis on a beautiful Saturday morning. Eighteen players formed three teams – the Gobblers, the Turkey Trotters and the Opponent Stuffers (each team selected it’s own name and captain!) and played a round robin of men’s, women’s and mixed doubles. It was a tough competition. Goblers Captain Dave C. lead his team to victory with a 4-2 record with Matt P. and Alonzo C. playing men’s doubles, Elaine S. and Diane B. playing women’s doubles and Dave and Lenise C. playing mixed dubs. The Opponent Stuffers, led by Marjie M, were a close second, also with a 4-2 record, but winning 2 less games than the Gobblers. Marjie and her partner Andrea S. were undefeated in women’s doubles, while Jose S. and Dave W held down the men’s doubles line and Marcail M. and James O. had two tough games. The Turkey Trotters, pictured below, led by Captain Dexter Q. ended up in third with Dexter partnering with Leandro in men’s doubles, while Eddi Q and Julie M. played women’s dubs and Sarah C. and Lee S. battling it out on the mixed doubles court. Elaine and Floyd, Monty and Sunny and Liz came out to watch tennis and join in the festivities. At the start of the potluck the athletes claimed their prizes and took a few moments to shower Sunny with some love and appreciation for all that he has done over the past few years for the Woodland Tennis Club and community. Very thankful for good health, good friends and good tennis!
