Fall Tournament — Results — 2015
For the fall tourney we had fantastic weather, a very nice turnout across the board and some top notch play, especially in the doubles fields.
First, A BIG SHOUT OUT to our Sponsors, who came through again in great form — from NU letting ECTA use the courts (alas, the Vandy Christie “Hut” is scheduled for demolition) to very generous gift certificates from these companies and organizations.

The Men’s singles saw Jay Woldenberg triumph once again, this time over George Thomas in the final, 10 – 1. George T. prevailed over a game Ray Nano in his marathon semis, 10 – 9 (10 – 8). Jason Mantzouranis rounded out the semis bracket. For the Men’s 3.5 singles, Chad Anderson was in solid form all weekend and won over Paul Frischer (who subbed in for Ken Rattner, a victim of a tender achilles heel, but not before getting through round robins and delivering more delicious home baked goods.)
Asiya Roland was the top in Women’s singles, 10 – 5 in the final over Christine Frank. Sally Riessen-Hunt and Keiko Anno were able to valiantly scramble out the round robin section.
Men’s Open Doubles saw a number of highly competitive matches. The finals witnessed a rematch of sorts in that the team of George Thomas and Tim Fisher edged out Jay Woldenberg and Mark Oreskevich 10 – 8. Very solid teams comprised the semis with Matt Wakeknight & Mark Fessler thwarted by Thomas/Fisher and Anders Klein & Louis Aurichio running into the brick wall of Woldenberg/ Oreskevich. Men’s 3.5 Dubs had the favorites in this bracket, Ray Boyer and David Fenn hang on in the second set for a 6-1, 7-5 victory in their finals.
Ironically, in a mirror image of numbers, the favorites in Women’s Doubles, Regina Wooten and Regina Lookis (known as the Regii) triumphed 7-5, 6-1 over Theresa Whittington & Carol Chiles.
Thanks also to Ten Mile House for hosting our get together on Saturday evening where more than 25 players and friends showed up.
Look for info on ECTA Thanksgiving event next month.
