Lunch was delicious while raffle ticket winners won prizes, and a super inspirational speech from Jeannie Chang on how to keep your heart healthy through emotional and social connections.

Thanks to everyone who pitched in to help make this a great event!

bench1You may have noticed that a new bench has been added to Court 1.  The bench is in honor of Dave Polvino and Bill Newton, two avid Lochmere tennis greats who passed well before their time.  Contributions made at the Dave Polvino Heart-Health Awareness Doubles Tournament this past November went towards the purchase of the bench and the memorial plaque.

Thanks once again to all those who attended, in particular to those who made contributions.

And a special thanks to Bill Wisdom for his efforts in acquiring the bench and plaque.  See photos taken by Bill.

This year's tournament will once again be held in mid to late November.  Further details will be forthcoming in September.

In the meantime, our best to the Polvino and Newton families.  Memories of Dave and Bill remain strong.

This past weekend (October 14th and 15th), the Lochmere Men's 4.0 Singles Team competed in Goldsboro at the 2017 4.0 18 and Over Singles Championships.

The team consisted of Steven Gloer, Santiago Rodao-Cuello, Chris Betz, David Outlaw, Patrick Newsome, and Ryan Cinoman.

 

Steven Gloers 2017 State Champ Team

 

They stormed to a second consecutive State title by sweeping all four teams including Wilmington, Charlotte, Greensboro, and Raleigh. The final match against Raleigh came down to the wire, with Chris winning his court in straight sets, Steven losing in a third set tiebreaker, and Santiago pulling the team across the finish line in a nail-biting 12-10 tiebreaker win.

Including last year's championship results, the team's record remains flawless at 9-0. Congratulations Gentlemen!!!!!!
