Sunday,January 15th, found many MITC members engaged in team tennis "a la WTT".

Mike Young, "Grand Master" and organizer of the event, divided players into 4 different teams: "Deuce Bags", "Fine Young Can-O-Balls", "Dare Doubles" and "Venomous Volleyers". There were 4 women and 2 men of varying play ratings and abilities on each  team for doubles and mixed doubles matches.

"Fierce" competition ensued. At the least, it was a good deal of "entertaining" competitive play with lots of laughs and loud cheering from the balconies. And very tasty snacks and refreshments were shared.

Look for a repeat of this unique format of play. (Coaches were allowed on court for advice, challenges could be made and the most difficult rule of all to remember: play let cord serves)

"Let's do this again soon!" was a refrain heard many times by participants.

March 5th, 2011, was a "WOW Day" at MITC!

"WHOPPING -- OUTSTANDING -- WILY" and spirited play

highlighted the MITC Winter Finals Jamboree Saturday

Eleven matches were played showcasing as many as 5 third set tie breakers (determining the winning third set and the match) and 3 of the set tie breaks. Can't get much more competitive than that...

Participants and fans shared festive food and refreshments all the  day long.

Here are the results:  "Congrats" to the winners and "Thanks" to all for playing.

Note: 77 MITC members played in  126 matches in the round robin tournament with 36 finalists (actually 28 different players, as some played in multiple final matches). Outstanding participation and excitement!

"Rally for the Cure" Tournament at MITC September 25, 2010

MITC hosted a benefit tournament for "Rally for the Cure" to further breast cancer awareness on Saturday, September 25th.

Both MITC members and non-members living in local communities joined in the competition for women's doubles and men's doubles. Fun rivalry prevailed with everyone coming out a "winner"!

The teams garnering the most points were:

Women's "A" Division: Mary Lesser and Kay Sherman

Women's "B" Division: Karin Finlay and Sandy Hamilton

Men's "A" Division: Mike Blanchette and Dave Delworth

Men's "B" Division: Dick and Mark Fernald

Linda Greenwood, Chairman of the event, reports that all went very well. "We were happy that people played who are not members of MITC, so that they could experience the friendliness of our club as well as learn more about our facility. We are looking forward to hosting another tennis tournament next year."

Awards were presented to "Mr Pinkie" and "Ms Pinkie" - the two that wore the most pink in their outfits. Mike Young won the male award and Sara Spittel the female with Bobbie Nyland a close second. Congrats!

We would like to thank Nadia MacStay for organizing the draw, Mary Lesser for presenting an outstanding luncheon menu (and her "assistants chefs") and Kirsten Peterson who registered players and also to Cheri Fry for donating door prizes. Tami Vezina and Barry Echavaria also donated a lesson as a prize and John Morin a racquet stringing.
