The Last Chance 04-02-2018
Morristown, NJ
written by: marjorie
Once again they gathered, old faces and new, for the “official” end of the paddle season in New Jersey – the Last Chance Invitational hosted by Spring Brook Country Club. The finals saw Ivan Harlow and Mike Stulac down Matt Bibbo and Drew Broderick in a tightly contested 7-6, 7-5 battle. This 32-team event (draw here) has been spearheaded by the same group of guys since its inception more than a dozen years ago. It has always featured great friends, great favors, great food and great play.
This year, sadly, we also said goodbye to one of the great supporters of the event and a true paddl [ read more ]

A Nor'easter was predicted...and showed up right on time! Although play was cancelled for the day, those entered in the Play for WIMSA tournament showed up for lunch, raffles and the Most Patriotically Dressed contest.

Atlantic Aces 11-07-2016
Summit, NJ
written by: Staff
It's not easy doing it all...tournament director, commentator, trouble-shooter and champion...but Drew Broderick managed to pull it off at the Atlantic Classic tournament last weekend. He and Jared Palmer repeated as champs this year, defeating Mikk Irdoja and Dan Regan in an exciting final. Coming back from a set point down in the semifinals, the champs did not drop a set in the event.

Using an 8-game pro set format for the backdraws was a well-received addition to the tournament, as was the use of a new team for the live video feed. The weather was perfect for the spectators, if a bit warm fo [ read more ]

Atlantic is Classic

Essex Fells, NJ
The Atlantic Classic moved to a different spot on the calendar, and the fall weather was definitely a benefit for the spectators.

Bobo Delaney and Kerri Delmonico paired to take home the Women's crown with a hard-fought 6-2, 4-6, 6-2 victory over Andrea Noyes and Judy Takach. The Men's semifinals provided great Saturday evening entertainment as newly-paired Scott Estes and Nathan LeFevre withstood the test of current Nationals silver medalists Johan duRandt and Matt Porter by the score of 6-1, 7-5. This was followed by Tournament Director Drew Broderick and Chris Gambino topping Steve DeRose and Jon Lubow in an athletic, fast-paced 7-6, 6-2 match.

Last Chance

Morristown, NJ
Summer is coming...and there was one last chance...to play in an organized platform tennis tournament during the 2010-2011 season. That tournament, The Last Chance, took place at Spring Brook Country Club on April 2nd. Featuring quality players, quality people, quality (and quantity) food, fire pit, massage therapist, cigars and music...All who were invited to play were winners! The tournament champs were Steve DeRose and Scott Giannetti, who defeated Drew Broderick and Steve Griggs in the finals. Best tournament of the year? Maybe...

Short Hills Invitational
Short Hills Invitational

Short Hills , NJ
The 60th Annual Short Hills Invitational Platform Tennis Tournament - the longest running event in the history of the sport outside of Nationals - provided plenty of competition over three days and what seemed like two entirely separate seasons. Friday's play occurred under dry, gray skies, with Steve Griggs and Steve DeRose claiming the 95+ crown and Jodi D'Agostini and Claudia Mullett the Women's "B" title (title match on Sunday). Saturday was cold, icy, rainy, miserable weather...but play continued throughout the day. On Sunday, under beautiful blue skies, Kerri Delmonico and Aila Main topped Heather Prop and Lynne Schneebeck for the Women's Championship and Drew Broderick and Denny English knocked out their competition in the Men's Championship. See the full draws and some photos.
