The grades are in, and both the Patterson Club B and the new Patterson Club Men's Ranking tournament have been rated A+! With full 32-draws in each event, plenty of courts, great food and even better competition, Region 2 began the season with a rousing success. The Patterson Club staff had to bring in extra seating to accommodate the crowds who gathered to watch afternoon play.
