Hermitage hosted a Club Challenge Tennis Social on September 25-27 for its members. We divided all the players into one of two teams, Team Manakin (Captain Mark Bernstine) and Team Sabot (Captain Eric Shulman). The event was set up just like the Thalhimer Club Challenge with men’s, women’s, and mixed doubles teams from the 3.0 to the 5.0 levels playing over the three day period. Scoring was the same with 2 points for a win, 1 point for a loss, and 1.5 for losing in a third set tiebreaker. We had 19 matches each day and 87 players that participated.
The teams were very even the whole weekend with team Manakin pulling out the win with a final score of 87-84. Everyone had a fantastic time we plan to make this an annual event.
Hermitage members donated approximately $1,500 to the RTA.
