Cottonwood Tennis Club held its annual Gender Doubles Tournament January 6-12. It started out on a rainy Sunday, but the rest of the week was perfect for tennis. There were 88 players participating (44 teams in six categories). Final results are as follows:
Red Division – Men: Champions: Bob Walk and Bruce Beelman; Runners up: Al Wagner and Bob Lewis
Green Division – Men: Champions: Rick Kendall and Steve Norvet; Runners up: Bill Bailey and Ron Ryer
Blue Division – Men: Champions: Jay Ketter and Cannon Hill; Runners up: Lou Maldonado and Jerry Higgins
Red Division – Women: Champions: Barb Jorgensen and Kathryn Campbell; Runners up: Kathy Moliter and Cindy McCarville
Green Division- Women: Champions: Mary Park and Ollie Johnson; Runners up: Maryann Sinerius and Susan Aparicio
Blue Division – Women: Champions: Mary Ann Rice and Kim Vargas; Runners up: Carol McCulley and Jeanne Tooley
Interesting side-note: The CTC rules of play require that if the same team wins two years in a row, they have to change partners for the following year. So, Bob Walk and Bruce Beelman are up for grabs in 2020 if you’re a Red player.
The CTC Mixed Doubles Tournament will be held in February. To check it out, go to Cottonwoodtennisclub.com.
