The 2013 Velvet Rope was held in Newport on July 19-20. The doubles tournament attracted a sporty group of players for a weekend of doubles play and parties.  The tournament was organized by Marc Lewinstein and Brian Owens.  A special shout out to Marc…who not only was a tournament organizer, but played a match at 8:30 on Saturday morning and then raced across the bridge to do the Save the Bay Annual 2 mile swim! Word has it that he completed the swim and made it to the Saturday night festivities.

The results of the tennis were:

Wharton Division

Dave Tedeschi & Zach Sacks def. Dillon Aldrich & Brian Owens 6/5,6/5

Faulise Division

Tom Shumaker & John Olympitis def. Patrick Wood-Prince & John Crawford 6/1,6/1
