Senior Men
Men's 145+ Nationals

There was a lot of experience on display at the 2013 APTA Men's 145+ Nationals at Sleepy Hollow Country Club. Originally conceived as an alternative to holding a Men's 75+ Nationals, the event has become one of the most popular and well-attended senior events on the calendar. Director Rich Lombard has shepherded the tournament through its 13th year. Champions were determined on Friday at the NYAC. See the completed draw and some photos.

Another B+
Court action at CAC

Chatham, NJ
Sixteen teams celebrated Valentines Day a few days early at the Centercourt Women's B. Held at Centercourt Athletic Club, this new event was added to the calendar by popular demand - and still had a Waiting List! Main draw winners were Dolores Krzanowski and Michele Byrne (pictured), who defeated Amy Massa and Patrice Shapiro in the finals. The Consolation crown went to Amy Roy and Patty McDonald, who had lost a third set tiebreaker in their opening match and then won the rest of the day. They defeated Ava Reynolds and Maggie Magaldi in the finals. Reprieve honors went to Mary Grubert and Margot O'Connor over Marian Cunningham and Ellen Crowe. The Last Chance final pitted Clearwater teammates Bonnie Codey and Elissa Cordrey against Heather Collins and Karen Haberl (a last minute replacement!), with Heather and Karen prevailing.       View the complete draw and some photos

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. The Saturday afternoon tailgate atmosphere was a perfect backdrop for some exciting, athletic play! New partnerships were on display as well. 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. Sunday morning's Men's final saw Broderick and Gambino prevail over Estes and LeFevre 7-6, 6-2.
