The 2021 Jason Morton went very well with great tournament entries (266), and the weather was near perfect except on the final day, Sunday, where it was a bit unseasonably windy and colder. But the show must go on, and the players did just that.
At the end of all matches, it was a genuine racket tap and a smile to each other across the net.
We also had more ladies playing compared to the past. This is a good sign, and this will only get better.
It was good to see our very own IronOaks tennis members playing: Crump/Berry, Johnson/Vargas, Jorgensen/Lapointe, D. Wagner, J. Sanders, S. Newitt, J. Utter, J. DeMoss, C. Mulvenna/T. Goldsmith. Team T. Shum/L. Lapane defeated B. Cheney/T. Mandel.
Congratulations to Jack Sanders, winner of the 80+ Singles division and IronOaks resident who recently celebrated his 85th birthday.
Tournament Director Matt Gleason again did a tremendous job scheduling the matches for the four-day event from morning until evening. Matt did have some assistance from the USTA office of the team of Kelly Ferris, Allie Pavlansky, and Lori Therrien, and also a big shout out to the USTA roaming referee, Bonnie Rudolph.
