Congratulations to Carlos Dunkerly and Leslie Howard for a stirring performance on Court #1 Sunday April 10th to clinch the 2011 MCC Mixed Doubles Crown over their valiant opponents, Marva and Bill Baumgart, 6-0, 6-2.
In the Gold Division, Herman Jordan and Lorri Mandekic out-dueled Mike Skolnick and Barbara Fier, 6-3, 6-2 for the title. The matches were both played on our newly renovated show courts 1 & 2 at noon.
The other participants were Bill and Mary-Ella Pegnato and Sandy and Hank Abouaf. All teams acquitted themselves well as many of the matches “went the distance.”
I encourage all the members of MCC to come out and support the players in our tournaments by watching the Sunday finals. We provide beer and afterwards get together at the court club to discuss the matches, the weather, and any other juicy gossip. Our next tournament is on May 14th and 15th: The MCC Doubles Championships. We will have both a Men’s and Women’s draw and encourage all players to throw their racket onto the court!
