This sold-out event saw 4 fantastic days of tennis and social events with 32 teams and players participating from more than 20 clubs played in the tournament.
Friday Night we had the raw bar at Racquets pub on the outside porch. It was beautiful night & more than 60 guests came and enjoyed the open bar and raw bar.
On Saturday night, the dinner was at the New York Yacht Club. Cocktails started at 8pm. Over 70 players & guests came to the dinner. The evening started with an open bar and everybody was enjoying the drinks and the band that played outside for everyone. The buffet soon followed and it was tremendous, Steak, Chicken,
Salmon pasta with a variety of salads and vegetables. After that 2 comedians came on and soon had everybody in hysterics.
A Big Thank you to the host, Kip Curren who covered the cost of both social events. Incredibly generous.
On the finals day there were a lot of great matches with matches going right to the buzzer.
