Two More NE Players Receive Gold Balls by Winning National Tournaments


Judy Smith of Brookline, MA won the women’s 75 grass national held in Philadelphia in late July. Her partner was Roz King from California. They were unseeded so scored an upset over the seeded teams.


More recently, Henry Tiberio managed to win two gold balls at the 90s grass national at Longwood Cricket Club in late August. In the singles, he defeated 1st seed Robert Sherman in three tough sets in the semis and then went on to win the finals 6-2, 6-1 over 2nd seed W. Mathes.


In doubles, there were three teams and they played round-robin. Henry and partner Steve Parson won two of three matches to win and thus win two gold balls in the same tournament!


Congratulations to both Judy and Henry for a great achievement!
