Across April 28th and 29th, the Anne Boleyn was held at Georgian Court (Lakewood, NJ); 10 enthusiastic players traveled from Newport, Boston, Tuxedo, and Philadelphia to compete for the coveted trophy.  Sunday’s main draw was driven by Saturday’s round robin match play:

Group 1

Amy Gold – 1st

Jeannie Heffernan – 2nd

Priscilla Person 3rd

Petra Napolitano — 4th

Ayca Yesim — 5th

Group 2

Helen Grassi — 1st

Beth Winthrop — 2nd

Shirley Freitag — 3rd

Laura Tillsley — 4th

Arianae Tsavaris — 5th

Beth Winthrop, in the end, was the winner of the tournament, snatching the prize from Jeannie Heffernan, in a hard-fought 8-4 victory.

Highlights of the weekend, included skills clinics run by Rob Whitehouse, Head Professional, Racquet Club of Philadelphia, facility tours, and a hotly-debated appearance by the ghost of Jay Gould.

Thank you to Rob for organizing, coaching, and marking, and to Lori Raia Thomas, Associate Director of Corporate and Foundation Relations, Georgian Court University, and Bill McLaughlin and Rich Moroscak, USCTPF, for their support of the event.
