War Opens Season
War at Shore

Wall Township , NJ
It was another great day of good weather and paddle at the War at the Shore. This mixed tournament is generally considered "opening day" for the platform tennis season in New Jersey.

Other winners were: Consolation - Charlotte Sikora and Jeff Lyon; Quarter Reprieve - Hilary DiFeo and Jerry Prior; and Last Chance - Joanne O'Shaughnessy and Steve Gilmartin.

Classic Snowstorm
LeagueClassic 2013

Short Hills, NJ
The Men's League Classic - sponsored by the New Jersey Men's Platform Tennis Association - always features 128 teams and a full day of paddle and food and fun! This year, there was the added attraction of an all day snow storm which was strong enough to overcome many of the court heaters. Despite the obstacles, the tournament was played as scheduled, with main draw finals on Monday night. Congrats to Anthony Cosimano & Jeff Hipkins on defending their title, this time over Steve DeRose & Tim McDougald in a 3 set thriller. See the complete main draw and some photos

B's Roll !

Summit, NJ
Teamwork was evident at the Beacon Hill Club Men's B tournament this weekend. The 32 players were mostly from New Jersey, but the finalists all traveled from out of state.

Other winners: Reprieve - Alex McDonald and Jim Hartman; Consolation - Steve Nitti and George Garneau; Last Chance - Phil Scott and Bill Haines (who, the spirit of keeping play going, subbed in when an injury occurred!).

Other winners were Dan Gibralter & John Oliva, Alex Woods & Mike St. John and Michael Levine & Paul Marden. The event was so popular that a second one is planned for February.     View the complete draw

Last Chance!
Last Chance

Morristown, NJ
It is officially over! The paddle season in New Jersey closed with the playing of the Last Chance Invitational at Spring Brook Country Club and area clubs. In its 6th year, the tournament was the biggest and best yet, with the organizers reluctantly expanding to 32 teams to accommodate more players. (Expanding the draw means spreading the teams over more clubs...but all returned to SBCC for afternoon play, cigars, massages...) Although they reached the final again, two-time defending champs Steve DeRose and Scott Giannetti were dethroned by Anthony Cosimano and Robert Krauss. See the: Complete Draw     Photos
