The match itself featured some exciting, hard-hitting points, especially in the first set, which Jacek and Gene took 6-3 after some long deuce games on both Renard and Gene’s service games. Eventually, Gene and Jacek came up with a break in the final game of the set to pull it out. The second set was more one sided with Gene and Jacek again taking the set 6-1, both holding serve themselves and getting two breaks on Kurt and Renard. The match was officiated by John Marshall. There were 30 spectators who braved the hot weather to enjoy the match. Thanks to all for supporting our tennis program. All members and friends of Mcc are welcome to attend these social gatherings, even if they don’t play tennis.
On September 8th on Court 1 we held a men’s doubles exhibition between our own pros, Gene Desrochers and Jacek Twarowski and outside pro-level players, Renard Johnson and Kurt Anderson. We set up a barbecue next to the court with beer, wine, water, and soda to drink. People were welcome to bring their own grillin’s or eat the hamburger, veggie burger, or hot dogs provided by the tennis staff through the generous donations given at our events by mcc members. Thank you!
