Congratulations to our Bennie Purcell Sportsmanship Award Winners:  Evan Kroeker and Toby Tenharmsel


Congratulations to all our teams that participated in the 2016 Mixed Doubles Championships in Murray, KY this past weekend (September 9 – 11).  Mel Purcell and all of the volunteers rolled out the red carpet once again!  From the flowers that were planted at the Murray State University courts to the Sportsmanship Award, to the Player Party!!!  Thank you!


Teams played matches at three different locations, not 5 minutes from one site to the next, which makes it easy on all our players.  Mother Nature felt it was necessary to once again mess with us, however the delays were very minimal and allowed for some beautiful evening tennis under the lights at MSU.


The Player Party included BBQ buffet, door prizes and live music which inspired some of our players to show off their dancing skills!


The local committee of volunteers nominated two different players to be recognized with the Sportsmanship Award.  Congratulations to Evan Kroeker and Toby Tenharmsel!!
