Congratulations Vermack Tennis Division Winners!

This past season was a very successful one for Vermack tennis teams. Three Vermack teams won their respective divisions one of which will be playing for the city championship later this week.

In mixed doubles Team Callahan, playing ALTA B-8, won their division before suffering a very narrow first round loss that could have gone either way. Captain Jeff Callahan did a magnificent job this season and is to be commended for his hard work and attention to detail.

Louise Labus led her USTA 4.0 Business Women’s team to post-season play making it all the way to the semi-finals. Louise, one of our most experienced and steady captains, “left everything on the court” as they say and suffered a torn Achilles tendon during the semi-final. So please do keep her in your thoughts and prayers as she begins her recovery. Vermack needs her back on the courts!

Finally, Holly Blake and her ALTA A-7 Senior Women’s team will be playing for the A-7 city championship on Saturday, August 3, at Blackburn Tennis Center. Start time is 5:00 PM. Please be sure to come out to BTC and cheer on your fellow club members! At Team Blake’s level all of the players are highly skilled and experienced so matches come down to nerves of steel and having a fierce, competitive spirit. Your support from the stands could make the difference!

And please be sure to thank all of our captains and co-captains for their efforts this season. Each and every one puts in a lot of hard work organizing practices, handling teaching pros, creating weekly lineups, and coordinating with opposing teams so that the rest of us can enjoy our tennis.
