On Friday, May 30th, Mcc mixed it up with our good friends at the Santa Monica Tennis Club as we do once or twice per year. After playing men’s, women’s, and mixed doubles from 6-8pm, we head up to the Mcc Restaurant for food, wine, and dance. This past interclub match was no exception. We have a full slate of matches, with 24 players turning out and filling our six lighted courts with smiling faces and fun tennis.
We had players of all levels from both clubs mixing it up in a unique format where we timed the matches, like a basketball game, rather than playing to a certain number of games. Most of the contests were close with Santa Monica edging Mcc out in the Men’s & Women’s doubles matches 4-2.
Then we rotated courts and mixed up the men and women, which again produced some quality tennis and good sportsmanship all around. In the mixed doubles round, Santa Monica again prevailed with four wins to Mcc’s 1 win and one match ended in a tie.
After the tennis, 20 of the 24 players ventured up to the hallowed Mcc Restaurant for roasted chicken, salad, Stella Artois, and other goodies while dancing to good music by Summerwind. Thanks to the players, Candace, and Chef Jesus for making this another memorable evening at Mcc!
