What a great weekend the Racquet Club of Philadelphia had hosting the 2012 Ladies Invitational! We had women from Washington, Philadelphia, and Aiken S.C.
The singles final consisted of a high level of woman`s tennis. Ginny Goodyear from Aiken played Philly`s own Melissa Purcell in a very good match and a very close first set. Although Melissa knows the court and has every type of weapon, Ginny was just a little too quick and served just a little bit tougher than Melissa.
Congratulations to Ginny!
In the doubles we had Philly`s own Kathy Carson and Melissa Purcell -vs. – Aiken`s, Ginny Goodyear, and Philly`s own Alex Escher. Goodyear and Escher surprised Melissa and Kathy by taking the first set 6/3! However, Melissa and Kathy were just a little too tough, and fought back to win the next two sets to win the Ladies invitational doubles title.
The Pro shop and the Racquet Club would like to thank everyone that made it to Philly this past weekend!
