WE DID IT!
Our first match is behind us and I’ve haven’t heard of any broken bones. I did see some great tennis though!
After all the dust settled, we had two of the three matches split with 2-2 scores. It seems so far we have some very good parity on many of the teams.
The Landings hosted the Plantation team. Traveling all the way from the other side of I-75, they came prepared to battle. Plantation Captain’s Ransom and Natale first said they “just didn’t want to be embarrassed”. I think they were trying to set us up since they brought a group of great guys and great tennis players. For the most part, no hard feelings or bad calls we openly visible (only because I didn’t play). At the end of the day the match was a tie of 2 for the Landings and 2 for Plantation. Great job guys!
The Vines hosted Cape Coral Racquet Club. Captain Dueease of the Vines and Stern of CCRC tried negotiating themselves to an advantage but the courts decided a tie of 2-2. Afterwards Captain Dueease was rumored to have run off with his sister or maybe it was Captain Mike’s sister. Who knows? Who cares?
Pelican Landings hosted Lighthouse Bay. Lighthouse Bay Captain Mishko brought his A team for an opening victory of 3-1. Captain Engelhard (always gracious) was spotted posting a sign on Mishko’s back saying “kick me”. Captain Engelhard did say his community had a large number of spectators watching the great tennis.
I would like to thank everyone for the efforts in making this League possible and the level of great tennis that it is. I any of you know of anyone else that would like to play, have them contact me through the web site contact tab.
