Doubles Frenzy…Aussie Open Style!

Posted on

On Friday, January 24th we had a fabulous time playing tennis while benefiting an extremely important cause. Our weekly Doubles Frenzy event is BACK and on the 24th we hosted a big party!  We had two groups of players, one level of 3.0 doubles with the other group being 3.5+. Thirty Aspen Hill members showed up for the mix and match doubles fun. A great time was had by all, playing as much doubles as we could get in during our 2 hours of tennis time.

When the final serve was hit at 9:00pm, our champions of the week were Jeff Mund and Josephine Garnem each had the highest number of games won in their groups! When the tennis was complete everyone gathered to enjoy a drink, snack, and watch the Australian Open tennis on TV! The big winner of the night was our entire group—as their participation in the event helped Aspen Hill Club in sending over $500 to the Australian Red Cross to aide in the Australian Wildfire rescue efforts.

Battle of the Ages Wrap Up

Posted on

On Friday, January 11, 2019 we had our annual Battle of the Ages Event. Once again the adults finished victorious winning a very close tournament, 6 to 5. The adults displayed their wisdom and knowledge of the game schooling the youngsters once again. I am very proud of how the juniors played because last year they were destroyed by the adults and really was taught a valuable lesson. They learned that just hitting the ball as hard as they can was not going to get them far in this game. From that loss last year the juniors came back stronger this year by playing smart, using the entire court, playing with a variety of pace and they even got up to the net. Thank you to both the adults and juniors for making this great fun event a huge success!
