CCWTA Winter 2015 Tournament Report March 6, 7 and 8
The Winter 2015 tournament was held at Heritage Bay in Naples. The event kicked off on Friday afternoon with the 3.0 and 3.5 divisions, 3 matches played at 4pm and 7 more matches started play at 6pm. We had a total of 31 teams taking part in the tournament: 4 at 4.0, 19 at 3.5, 10 in the 3.0 and 2 2.5 teams.
Players were given a CCWTA pen and Blow Pops, which we did not have last time ☺.
1 match started off the Saturday session at 11 am, followed by 6 courts starting action at noon. Championship Sunday saw finals in the 2.5, 3.0 and 4.0 played at 9am. The 3.5 division had their semi-finals played at 9 with the final played at 11:30.
The weather was ideal throughout the weekend even though the forecast was not looking promising on Friday and Saturday.
1 default took place on Friday night and no injuries other than a scraped knee caused by a dive to reach a ball!!
We hope a good time was had by all and we are looking forward to hosting the spring event Both, finalists and champions were awarded roses and trophies. On behalf of the entire Heritage Bay Tennis Staff we just wanted to say thank you for allowing us to host and direct the tournament again, it was a lot of fun and there was certainly plenty of competitive tennis played throughout the weekend.
We hope all the players and the CCWTA staff enjoyed the tournament experience and we look forward to seeing you in the Spring 2015 tournament. -Art HERITAGE BAY
