2015 Winter Doubles Tournament

Results from Tourney and NU open event this weekend —

We had a solid turn-out and very competitive tennis over the two days.

nicole-anthony-jackson-1-15The Mixed Dubs saw the brother/sister team of Nicole/Anthony Jackson prevail over the Phipps in the Finals — David (a winner in the 4th of July tourney and Evanston Sunday League Team Regular) and his Dad Arral, who was in town from California. Perhaps the Jacksons took some inspiration from their other sibling, an NU Womens’ team player from the late 90’s/early 00’s looking down from the pictures on the wall of the Combe Center.

arral-david-phipps-1-15Great play from the semis came from the teams of Ray Boyer/David Fenn (regular tourney stalwarts) and a new Chicago contingent of Mark Brodner/Cate Brodner.

The Women’s Dubs had the very competitive duo of Julie Colhoun/Ginny Lazarus run into another great team from Chicago comprised of Mary DaVanti/Amanda Ellsworth.

The first time tandem from the Windy City (in an ecta event) prevailed in a close 10 game pro-set.

Look for Spring Kick-off party in April (likely location at Prairie Moon again, plus the Spring outdoor tourney)
