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 ]

The Beacon Hill Club Women's B tournament was held on a glorious winter day, with a few twists...A last minute dropout at match time resulted in a last-minute substitute...and then another substitute for later in the morning...but everyone got to play!

Lehigh Valley Classic
2-23-2014
Lehigh Valley

Allentown, PA
They came from north, south, east and west to play in the Lehigh Valley Classic. Most of the top players participated, although many switched up partnerships for the day. When one of the #2 seeds was a late scratch due to illness, it wasn't hard finding a replacement - the players really enjoy coming to this event, and it is an easy commute for most. Those from Chicago, Virginia, Washington, DC and Massachusetts had longer journeys, but were all willing to make the effort to earn Region 3 Presidents Cup points and to vie for the best prize out there - a stay at tournament director Chip Morrow's Dominican Republic villa. Drew Broderick and Steve DeRose continued their winning ways (3 tournaments - 3 titles). They ousted Jeff Morneau & Johan duRandt in an exciting semifinal and then, in an all-American final, topped Mike Marino & Dane Schmidgall. Backdraw results: Bostrom & Bredberg finished 5th; Levanat & Rhazali won the Conso; Kahler & Grangeiro won the 16 Reprieve and Furman - McGrath claimed Last Chance honors.
