The Second Annual "Aces for Action" Women's Doubles Tennis Tournament

Saturday September 20, 2008
Cary Tennis Center
2727 Louis Stephens Drive, Cary

A cool day on the courts!

Cool autumn temperatures welcomed the players at the Second Annual "Aces for Action" Charity Women's Doubles Tennis Tournament on September 20th. Ok, really it was downright chilly but it didn't deter any of the players from coming out to support the cause! Thirty-four women paired up at the beautiful Cary Tennis Center for a great day of tennis.

The day began with a delicious power breakfast provided by Whole Foods Market of Cary including their homemade granola bars – yum! After a brief warm up, the teams took to the courts for some friendly competition. After a tabulation of the scores, the winners were announced. Champs For the second year in a row, Olga Tiselsky and Trudie Laches were the winners in the 2.5/3.0 group (next year we're movin' em up!). Winners in the very well matched 3.5 group were Alice Glover and Frances Henderson. The 4.0 winners were Lissa Lutz and Nancee Merritt. Congratulations to all the winners.

After lunch, the raffle prize tickets were drawn for some great items including a wine tote, tennis package, gift certificates and gift baskets.

Many of the players returned from our First Annual event last October. Our many thanks to all the players who returned and those who were new to our Second Annual event for their support in helping to make this another successful event.

We would also like to thank our team of volunteers that included Matt Igelman, Tatyana, Jeff Harper, Brad Andrews, Richard Atwood, Ed Wilson and Charles Cowell. A special thank you to our resident HNC tennis pros, Kathy Register and Tracy Kelly, who handled the recruiting, registration and scoring for the event – we couldn't do it without you!
