When the first tournament was held years ago, everyone was a novice tennis player. So when they realized this was going to be an annual event, everyone made it a point to regularly practice over the course of the following year to be better prepared for the next tournament. Every year since, as the participants became more experienced and skilled players, the games naturally became more competitive.
Don’t take my word for it, check out our Facebook photo album for the event and see what a blast everyone had playing!
A few of these folks enjoy playing tennis so much, they began participating in a local tennis league called Boston Tennis Friends and they became league champions last year. This league also holds an annual tournament but its purpose is to raise funds for charity. This year’s tournament was held on August 13th and the proceeds benefited the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
