Club Championship Results 2014

On September 19 and 20, 2014, General Burns Tennis Club hosted its year-end Club Championship.

Thankfully, the weather cooperated on Friday night and Saturday (although it was a little chilly Friday night) and our finalists rose to the occasion to play some exciting tennis and were cheered on by an enthusiastic crowd of supporters.

Friday night’s match under the lights featured youth against even more youthful with two former GBTC junior champions facing off in the men’s singles final. In the end Marko Arezina (12 years of age) prevailed over Robbie Thout (barely 20, is my guess) in 2 well played sets.

Saturday’s matches featured mainstays of the GBTC including an exciting “pro” match featuring Arthur Cuenco and Miguel Macias Carrasco. In the end, Miguel prevailed 6-3 in a great display of serve and volley, while Arthur pulled out clutch performance by winning the tiebreaker in dramatic fashion.

The championship matches on Saturday were a treat with the finalists producing many long rallies and excellent shot making. This year’s champions and runners up are as follows:

Mixed Doubles: Angela Palacio and Tom Fitzgerald (Laura Wardlaw and Miro Savic, runners up)
Men’s Doubles: Rob Lalonde and Tom Fitzgerald (Robbie Thout and Mark Hopkins, runners up)
Women’s Singles: Angela Palacio (Laura Wardlaw, runner up)
Men’s Singles: Marko Arezina (Robbie Thout, runner up)

Many thanks to all of this year’s players and supporters as well as everyone who helped with final day preparations and BBQ.
