Morristown, NJ The Last Chance Invitational, based at Spring Brook Country Club is a true invitational. Invitations are issued and partners approved by the tournament committee. The goal is a fun-filled end-of-season event with a mix of levels. Ideally, no team is so strong or so weak that matches are not competitive. In its fifth year, the tournament ran into less than ideal weather for the first time, but the 24 teams were able to play through morning showers to make it to a gray but mostly dry (weather-wise) afternoon. Beverages, food and friendships were available in abundance. Spectators showed up just to share in the fun! The day was also used to introduce Steve DeRose as the new Racquets Professional at Spring Brook and to say good-bye to Steve and Trish Griggs, who will be moving from NJ in the near future. Steve DeRose and Scott Giannetti repeated as champs this year...does this team need to be split up for next year? See some photos and the complete draws
