What a tournament to close out the 2019 season!
Twelve of Rossmoor's Wild Card champions battled it out in the spirit of competition and camaraderie. The standard was remarkable with very few unforced errors, lots of long rallies, counter-punches and put away winners.
In a nail biting final round, Susan Hill and Dave Kern took a close victory over Rowena Slee and her partner to clinch the following results.
For the women, Rowena Slee and Susan Hill shared first place, each with 18 points. Becky Reiss took second and Linda Hague took third.
One the men's side, Dave Kern took first place with 19 points, edging out Ed Logwood on 18 points, with Ron Wyman coming third.
All players qualified for the Championships by placing in one of the monthly Wild Card tournaments hosted by the Rossmoor Tennis Club. These events are open to anyone in Rossmoor, whether or not they are a member of the club. The tournaments are played over seven rounds.
Congratulations to the winners and all the other finalists: Barbara Blum, Carol Pillsbury, Margaret Logwood, Shin Kim and Terry Quinlan.
We'll see you back again in 2020.
