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 ]

Franklin Lakes, NJ
written by: Marjorie
Sometimes a blind date turns out better than expected...Fritz Odenbach and Brian Mitchell found that out today in the Men's APTA 60+ National Championships. Mutual friends suggested that the two pair up, and they managed to reach the finals before falling to Jim Kaufman and Bob Kleinert, upsetting top seeds Ivan Harlow & Ken Persson en route. This is Kaufman's second gold medal of the season, and he will go for #3 tomorrow as Senior Men's competition continues at the Indian Trail Club. [ read more ]

Men vs Mother Nature
NJ Men

South Orange, NJ
The New Jersey Men battled a crowded schedule and Mother Nature to pull off another successful event. A snow storm that continued through the morning forced a change of plans...and the tournament began with lunch, followed by the first rounds of play. Although a packed schedule forced some teams to miss the event, the final of the New Jersey Men's State Open division could not have been more entertaining! Pat Kelly and Nathan LeFevre fought their way back from a set and a break down to take the crown by the score of 4-6, 7-6, 6-3. The Men's 120+ Division was won by Ivan Harlow and Jeff Zak, while the 50+ division will be completed at a later date.

Last Chance Finalists

Morristown, NJ
The 4th annual "Last Chance" Invitational was held April 10th at the Spring Brook Country Club.  What makes the event so special besides it being the last chance of the season to play paddle in balmy weather is the quality of the field each year.  This year players like Anthony Cosimano and Steve DeRose were the headliners.  But the list goes on... national champ Greg Moore, Mike Palmer, Kendall Osborne, Ivan Harlow, Mike Atkinson and new senior champ Steve Griggs.  Great weather, great food and fun.  Hosts Greg Robertson and Hank Whiting, along with club pro Jim McCready, had it easy with the quality and sportsmanship everyone brought to the event. Pictured are runners-up Greg Robertson and Kendall Osbourne and champions Anthony Cosimano and Robert Krauss. ~ submitted by Jim McCready
