Columbus Open
Columbus Open Men

Columbus, OH
Paddle is a winter sport...but there are limits to what the heaters can do to clear the courts! Nevertheless, the Columbus Open was played on Saturday, February 8. Director Denny English (winner of the Men's 90+ with partner Mark Kebe on Friday), reported that in the Men's Open division, the 4 seeds held through the semis, and #1 Ryan Baxter and Ricky Heath topped #2 Rob Bakker and Eric Miller in the finals. Brad Meadors & JR Randall claimed the Consolation title; The Reprieve crown went to Triplett & Allison; McEnery & Ghidotti were Conso Reprieve winners; and Vens & Shaeffer claimed 5th place with their Quarterfinal Reprieve victory.

Short Hills Invitational
Short Hills Invitational

Short Hills , NJ
The 60th Annual Short Hills Invitational Platform Tennis Tournament - the longest running event in the history of the sport outside of Nationals - provided plenty of competition over three days and what seemed like two entirely separate seasons. Friday's play occurred under dry, gray skies, with Steve Griggs and Steve DeRose claiming the 95+ crown and Jodi D'Agostini and Claudia Mullett the Women's "B" title (title match on Sunday). Saturday was cold, icy, rainy, miserable weather...but play continued throughout the day. On Sunday, under beautiful blue skies, Kerri Delmonico and Aila Main topped Heather Prop and Lynne Schneebeck for the Women's Championship and Drew Broderick and Denny English knocked out their competition in the Men's Championship. See the full draws and some photos.
