Dad and I won the Father/Daughter "Ultra Senior" (aka the Father/Daughter 80+) Hard Courts last weekend in San Diego at the Barnes Tennis Center. We beat last year’s grass and clay court champions, Ann Jacobs and Dick Phelps in the final. One of the best matches of the tournament was between Jacobs/Phelps and this year’s indoor champions, Appleby/Payne, won 64 in the third on a cold, windy day in San Diego. Appleby/Phelps won the back draw for the 2nd year in a row. The Settles won the bronze with a tough 76 75 win over Bentz/Matelski.
There was a nice dinner on the beach on Friday night at the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club, and the tournament hotels were the LJBTC and the adjoining La Jolla Shores Hotel, both on the Pacific, really nice.
There was also open, 60+ 70+ (won by Herm Ahlers/Krista O’Connor for the 3rd straight year) and Mother/Son.
