Westboro Menís 60 Doubles Sectional Tournament
August 8-9, 2009
The annual New England 60s sectional doubles tennis tournament was again a big success this year. The weather was perfect, 75 and sunny, for both days of the tournament. The teams were very competitive, and the closest match was the semifinal in which 1st seeds Bruce Mahler and Bob Tilley defeated Curt Anderson and Bob McKinley 6-4, 6-3.
In the finals, 2nd seeds and long time doubles partners Tommie George and and TD Pete Allen defeated 1st seeds Bruce Mahler and Bob Tilley 6-3, 6-2. Tommie is nearly fully recovered now from a major shoulder injury from last September. Bob Fougere and George Ulrich won the round-robin Consolation event. All match results can now be found at http://tennislink.usta.com/tournaments/Draws/EventDraw.aspx?T=71539&E=1.
Six of the seven teams, plus several "significant others", came to TD Pete Allenís backyard Saturday from 4 -7 PM and enjoyed great conversation over wine, beer, and plenty of appetizers, featuring Tommie's smoked salmon and trout.
