Wilton Open benefits Y
Wilton Y

Wilton, CT
 There are many tournaments "for a cause", but the Wilton Open, which just celebrated it 29th year, is probably unique in its approach. It featured full draws in both the Open and "B" divisions, afternoon barbeque, steel drum band and a full party atmosphere. Both events had long Wait Lists, so you might want to line up your partner now for next year - scheduled for Saturday, March 16. Congratulations to Richard Greene and Larry Garinger and Bo Bogardus and Juan Arraya, winners of the "B" and Open tournaments. View the complete draws

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.
